My name is Melissa Blanks and I am your City Councilmember for Position #2. I was born and raised in the Brazosport area. I am a proud product of Brazosport ISD, graduating from Brazoswood High School in 2005. My husband, Scott “Scotty” Blanks, was also born and raised in the Brazosport area (he is a native Richwood resident). After we graduated from college, we moved back to the Brazosport area. We love calling our hometown our home. The majority of our family and friends still live in the area, so we are always busy! I think it is highly important to be actively involved in the community. Before serving on city council, I was the Chairperson for Keep Richwood Beautiful and a Board Member for Richwood’s Parks & Rec. I am also a member of the Junior Service League of Brazosport and a life member of the Sam Houston State University Alumni Association.
I hold the following college degrees from Sam Houston State University: Master of Arts in Higher Education Administration, Master of Education in Counseling, and a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. I also have an Associate of Arts from Brazosport College. I am a Dual Credit Counselor for Brazosport College. Prior to my counseling position, I was a teacher for Angleton ISD for 5 years. I am happy to serve this great community through city council, my career, and the organizations I volunteer with!
