Ms. Chevonne Lorigo-Johst ~ Trustee
Ms. Chevonne Lorigo-Johst was elected to the Pflugerville Board of Trustees in 2023.
When she was adopted at three years old, Chevonne became the youngest of four children. She later reconnected with her birth family and remains very close to them. She attended Santa Clara University’s Leavey School of Business to earn her Bachelor of Science in Commerce in Organizational Analysis and Business Management with an emphasis in Human Personnel and a minor in Sociology. Her beginning career roles included being a College Graduate Recruiter for a semiconductor company and working at a state university in Financial Aid, Undergraduate Studies, and the Police Department. She also completed postgraduate Women in Executive Leadership certification from Cornell University in 2021.
Chevonne and her husband, Darren, have been married for 20 years and have five children in Pflugerville schools. They are also business partners and are currently breaking ground on a new coffee shop. Together, they previously owned and operated multiple grocery stores for over a decade before moving to Pflugerville to be closer to family.
Chevonne has always been passionate about service. She has volunteered at domestic violence shelters, child development centers for families in need, living communities with patients undergoing HIV treatment, Habitat for Humanity, and food pantries. She has served as President and in other roles within parent-teacher organizations; sat on school district committees for academic advisory, bond budget oversight, strategic planning; and diversity, equity, and inclusion in multiple states for almost fifteen years. She was a Girl Scout Troop Leader for eight years and a founder, member, and regional coordinator for numerous chapters of the MOMS Club, an international nonprofit dedicated to supporting stay-at-home parents of all backgrounds. This past year she served as the chapter leader for a local action committee, and she volunteers with local clubs that are dedicated to social justice, public education, and encouraging the local community to become civically engaged.
Chevonne is dedicated to serving all students, focusing on embracing diversity, increasing equity and access, and fostering inclusion. She is passionate in advocating for our educators and staff so that together we can support our students and families and bring out the best in PfISD.
