Montgomery County, TX, April 13, 2021 – Montgomery County Food Bank today announced that Dr. Curtis Null, Superintendent of Schools for Conroe Independent School District (CISD), has been elected to Montgomery County Food Bank’s (MCFB) Board of Directors. The addition of Dr. Null brings the size of MCFB’s Board of Directors to 19 members.
With over 20 years of experience in the education field, Dr. Null became Superintendent of CISD in June 2018. Under Dr. Null’s leadership, CISD has continued to receive the highest rating from Texas Smart Schools for high academic achievement and cost-effective operations. In addition to

MCFB actively partners with CISD to provide nutritious, kid-friendly food to CISD students who are identified as at-risk for hunger through its Backpack Buddy Program and school food pantries. MCFB’s Backpack Buddy Program provides these students with bags of food to take home on Fridays so they do not go hungry on the weekends. With this strengthened partnership, MCFB hopes to expand its services for the many children in need of food assistance in Montgomery County.
“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Null to the Montgomery County Food Bank family,” said Kristine Marlow, MCFB’s President and CEO. “It is a blessing to elect such a highly respected Montgomery County education leader to our board of directors. We look forward to an ongoing partnership with Conroe ISD and bolstering our service to its students who are at-risk of hunger.”

I am honored to join the board of directors and look forward to maintaining the great relationship that has been established between Conroe ISD and the food bank.”
Dr. Null holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Houston, master’s degree from the University of Florida and doctorate from the University of Houston. Dr. Null and his wife, Tanya Null, who teaches prekindergarten in CISD, reside in Conroe, Texas with their two children.
