Minh Ngo elected as MUSD Board President, Kelly Yip-Chuan as Vice President

At this past Tuesday’s Milpitas Unified School District (MUSD) Board of Education meeting, a nomination process was held to elect board members into new positions. 

Minh Ngo was voted in as President, Kelly Yip-Chuan was voted in as Vice President, and Anu Nakka was elected to serve as Board Clerk.  

Per Board Bylaw 9100, the MUSD Board of Education holds an annual organization meeting where they elect officers for the following year. At these meetings, the regular meeting calendar is also organized for the upcoming calendar year.  

President Ngo told The Beat that he appreciated his fellow trustees for giving him the opportunity to lead the district…

“I look forward to elevating our Culture of We in Milpitas Unified School District, providing pathways for success with Phase 2 of our Innovation Campus, breaking ground on the new MHS Performing Arts Theater, and building up school communities for student belonging and success,” shared Ngo, who has served on the school board since 2020.

Ngo, who’s served as Vice President over the past year, will be serving as MUSD’s Board President for the first time. Chris Norwood had served as President before him.  

Yip-Chuan, who was Board Clerk this past year, served as Board Vice President in 2021 and Board President in 2022. She was elected onto the school board in 2018, and won her bid for re-election in 2022. She is looking forward to stepping back into the role of Vice President. 

“As we embark on this journey together in 2024, I am enthusiastic about contributing to the ongoing success of MUSD alongside our new president Minh Ngo and other Board Members in collaboration with Superintendent Jordan,” shared Yip-Chuan with The Beat. 

Her priorities for the upcoming year are to enhance a safer learning environment and healthy mental well-being for students and staff. She also wants to explore career pathways for students, as well as find ways to retain high-quality staff. 

“There is so much work to be done, and we can only do it as a cohesive team,” said Vice President Yip-Chuan.
