Remembering Kimberly Montz

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a remarkable individual and a cherished member of the Friendswood ISD family, FEF Director Emeritus Kim Montz on the morning of Monday, June 5, 2023.

Kim was a Friendswood High School 1987 graduate. FISD played a significant role in Kim’s life as she married her high school sweetheart David. The two raised their four children in the District and David currently serves as Vice President on the FISD School Board of Trustees.

Kim was elected to FEF’s Board of Directors in September of 2009 and served for 13 years. During this time, Kim played an instrumental role in shaping the future of education in Friendswood ISD.

“Beyond her role as a board member, Kim was a true friend and mentor to many, including me,” FEF Board President Molly Crow said. “Her wisdom and unwavering dedication have truly left a lasting impression on our organization.”

Throughout her tenure on the Board, Kim served on a variety of committees; however, the impact she made as the chair of FEF’s Grant Committee will undeniably be felt for years to come. The time, energy, and passion Kim poured into championing FEF’s Adopt-A-Grant program was truly remarkable. She always advocated for innovation that would enrich the education of students and teachers across Friendswood ISD.

“Kim helped tirelessly with building and pushing forward the success and momentum of this incredible community organization to support the students and teachers of Friendswood ISD,” David Montz said.

Upon her retirement from FEF’s Board, Kim shared that some of her favorite memories were at SurPrize Patrol which is the culminating end-of-year celebration of all the grants funded on each campus.

Though we mourn the passing of the incredible woman who was Kim Montz, we also celebrate her life and legacy. We are forever grateful for her selfless contributions, which have shaped the lives of countless students and educators in our district.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Montz family and loved ones during this difficult time. Our hope is that they may find peace in the memories shared and the knowledge that Kim’s impact will be felt for generations to come.

The family requests that donations be made in Kim's honor to the Friendswood ISD Education Foundation. All donations will help establish a Kimberly Montz Memorial Grant Fund. Please visit for more information.
