2024 - 2025 Board of Directors

The Board of Directors meets on the 2nd Monday of each month at 4:00 PM at the Faith Academy campus.

President - Renee Poulter

Renee, husband Mike and their three children moved to Bellville from Florida in the summer of 2017. As a Christian working in healthcare, she wanted a town that had a hospital and a private school, and Bellville checked those boxes and so many more. Having her children at Faith Academy has been something she is passionate about and knowing her children will grow up learning about God everyday. 
     Renee is an RN and is a flight nurse for PHI Air Medical in Houston. She is confident that God has put her on this earth to be a healer and to provide compassionate care to those in need and she is honored to serve His intended purpose for her life. 
    Renee has served on the Board of Directors of Faith Academy Bellville for 5 years. Her hope is that each and every person who enters the building can feel the palpable love of God as she does. She feels overjoyed to say that she is involved in a school that puts Jesus Christ at the center and is willing to do what is right even when it's hard. The FALCON center has been one of those challenges to be admired and is proud to see it is becoming the flagship of FAB for the betterment of not only all FAB students but the community as well. 
    She is always available and usually around campus and would relish in the opportunity to get to know all of her Faith Academy family members!
