CKSD adds Cizon as its community relations

The Central Kitsap school board approved hiring Laurie Cizon as the next community relations specialist. Cizon is currently the program development specialist for the Amarillo Independent School District in Amarillo, Texas.

She previously served as the director of community and media relations for AISD.

Cizon replaces Jeanie Schulze who will retire at the end of this month.

Amarillo ISD includes 70 square miles in Potter and Randall counties of the Texas Panhandle and serves a city of about 176,000 people.

The district has four high schools, eight middle schools, 36 elementary schools, a specialty high school, and an alternative school which serve a population of about 29,000 students.

“This is a marvelous opportunity for anyone who loves children and education. I am thrilled to be named the new community relations specialist for the Central Kitsap schools,” Cizon said. “Under the capable leadership of Greg Lynch and the district’s administrative leadership team, this district’s history of exemplary programs will continue to flourish. I look foward to being part of the district’s success and this beautiful community.”

Cizon earned her bachelor’s degree in education from the University of North Texas in 1969. She served as an elementary teacher before becoming the director of Amarillo ISD communications. Cizon is the executive director of the Amarillio Education Foundation and has been a volunteer for numerous community service organizations and the chamber of commerce. She is a member of the Texas Association of Partners in Education, Texas School Public Relations Association and the National School Public Relations Association.
