About Cindy Stuart
Cindy Stuart is a Tampa native with a passion for education.
Cindy is a proud graduate of A.P. Leto High School and put herself through college to become the first person in her family to be a university graduate. Her three children are products of the Hillsborough County school system, where she’s been an active volunteer and advocate for our students, teachers and schools for more than a decade.
Cindy’s dedication to Hillsborough Schools began with her children’s enrollment. She knew successful students begin with engaged parents so she joined the Lake Magdalene PTA, where she served its Executive Board for seven years, becoming its president in 2010. She also served as treasurer for the Buchanan Middle School PTSA, where her devotion earned her a nomination as the Volunteer of the Year in 2009. In 2012, the HCA named her its Guidance Advocate of the Year.
In addition to leading on the School Board, Cindy serves on the Metropolitan Planning Organization, Glazer’s Children’s Museum, Juvenile Justice Board, Value Adjustments Board, SERVE and Florida School Boards Association (alternate). She continues her volunteer work with Metropolitan Ministries, St. Paul’s Catholic Church and participates in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk to Cure Breast Cancer. She is also a coordinator for her neighborhood watch.
Cindy and her husband of 20 years, Jim, live in the Lake Magdalene area with their three children.
