2012-13 TCTA State President Nanette Sissney is one of three former TRS trustees who will be considered by Gov. Greg Abbott when he makes appointments to the TRS Board in the upcoming months. Sissney was the top vote-getter in the election for the at-large seat, a position that can be held, and voted on, by any active or retired member of the system. Rounding out the top three, from whom Abbott must pick, are current trustee Karen Charleston and former trustee Greg Poole.

An election was also held for a retiree-only position, and Fran Plemmons was the top-vote getter over the only other candidate, James Nance. Abbott will select his appointee from the two retirees.
