Allison MillerExecutive Director
Allison Miller has been with the Frisco Independent School District since 1999. Prior to taking on her role as director of the foundation in 2006, she worked at Frisco High School and in the superintendent’s office. Allison also served as a board member on the foundation chairing the community relations committee. Moving to Frisco in the early nineties and working in one of the fastest growing cities and school districts in the nation, Allison has seen first-hand the impact such growth can have on a district and its education foundation as both their greatest challenge and their biggest inspiration. When she moved to Frisco in the early nineties, the distinct was home to four campuses and just over 2,000 students. Today, in 2021 Frisco ISD is home to 73 campuses serving more than 65,000 students. Currently, Allison serves as the Director of Community Relations for Frisco ISD and as the Director of the Frisco Education Foundation.
