“On behalf of the Texas Charter Schools Association, I am thrilled that Texans in House District 120 elected a charter school operator to office. For 20 years, Representative-elect Barbara Gervin-Hawkins has run the George Gervin Academy and understands charter schools first-hand and their challenges. I believe she is among the first, if not the first, charter operators serving in a state legislature in the nation and I look forward to working with her in the next session.”
