Mr. Burke Hall has lived in Grand Prairie all his life. His mother was a teacher in Grand Prairie and his two daughters are 3rd generation GPISD students. His background is in construction, construction management, and real estate inspection. He is employed by Adams Supply of Dallas and he and his wife own and operate Gopher Home Inspection. Mr. Hall and his family attend First Baptist Church in Grand Prairie, where he is a life-long member.
Mr. Hall's first term on the GPISD School Board was in 2012-2015 where he was an advocate for fiscal responsibility, early childhood development, and transparency. During his first 3-year term, GPISD expanded Pre-K to serve approximately 50% more students, which has been one of his passions. Another passion of Burke's is parental involvement. GPISD has added more Parent Involvement Centers, which will help more parents and families involved in the education of their children. The District's financial rating is strong and healthy, which has also been a priority of Mr. Hall's.
