LifeChanger of the Year Nominee Profile

« Return to Nominee List

Cindy Boaz

Position: Adaptive P.E. / Special Olympics Coach
School: Keller Independent School District
School District: Keller Independent School District
City, State: Keller, TX

Support Cindy

Cindy Boaz was nominated by an acquaintance who wishes to remain anonymous.

Cindy is more than just a daughter, sister, aunt, mentor and friend. She is a LifeChanger. She has been pouring everything she has into the success of her students and athletes for the past 15 years. She is someone that never accepts the word “can’t”. She’s always thinking, creating and searching for new ways that children can enjoy movement, games, fun and interaction with their peers!

In addition, Cindy touches many lives through the Special Olympics program at Keller ISD. If a student wants to participate, Cindy will find a way. She spends countless hours preparing and planning for the Chad Powell Annual Track Meet where athletes from other districts compete. Time, talent and treasure are truly what she pours into these athletes on a daily basis.

Cindy had a student with limited mobility and medical issues that was not able to go to PE or even participate in a small group. This left the student alone with no interaction with peers and little chance for movement or fun. Cindy helped the student try bike riding so she could engage in physical activity with her peers and family.

After just one year, the student is riding the bike safely and loves to ride through the halls and greet others along the way. This opportunity gave the student a way to be active, social, and move independently through her environment. As a bonus, the student’s family bought her a bike for her birthday. She can now ride in her community with her family to explore nature and get to know her neighbors better.

A true teacher’s work is never done when the school year ends. True to form, Cindy spends much of her time supporting a non-profit organization called Our Father’s Children, which works exclusively with children that come from homes of abuse and neglect. Every year she volunteers at their weekly camps as “Coach Cindy”. She not only makes sure the children who attend have fun at their activities, she provides words of encouragement, and a listening ear. Cindy brings the best out of each and every one of them. 

After camp, Cindy works one-on-one with children, serving as a mentor in the Mentoring Club and serving teenagers at the weekend retreats.

Lastly, she works tirelessly accumulating items for the annual auction, which allows Our Father’s Children to offer these camps at no cost to the children.

"If ever asked if she has any children of her own, her response would be that she has over 100+ children! She truly does love each one of these kids – whether at school or camp – and wants to see each one achieve the best that life has to offer!" her nominator said. "She truly is an inspiration to her school, community, family, and others!"

There is no one quite like Cindy Boaz who can cross all groups and bring the barriers down to bring people together in a strong unity. Cindy makes each student athlete know they are seen and loved. Ive never seen anyone with her next level of communication skill. Cindy is the best!

Cindy is an inspiration to all who love her. She is constant in her love and kindness and her generosity exceeds everyone’s expectation. She loves her family and her kids at school and always puts their needs in front of her own. She is a shining example of how to show love and spread joy to others by the simple acts of every day life. Cindy is a true friend and I am blessed beyond measure to call her my friend.

J.B. LaDay Posted over a year ago

I can tell personally the Cindy Boaz is truly changing the lives of our kid because I see it. She just has a unique way of relating to each kid differently. I have a kid that has been in Keller ISD Special Olympics since age 8. Her expectation for them is that of any coach. Work hard, compete and have fun doing it. I admire what she does both at work and benefits in our community.

Julia Cerione Posted over a year ago

????well said! I agree 1000 % She is THE Best!! I have learned so much from Cindy Boaz I wish I was good with words to be able to explain how truly fabulous she is. I'm so thankful for her in my life. She amazes me when I help her at special Olympics and at school. I want to be like her when I grow up ?? She is a real inspiration to everyone she comes in contact with.

Christa Taylor Posted over a year ago

I'm not sure any of us really have any idea of how many hours Cindy selflessly gives to the students in Keller. She doesn't brag or complain. She just does what needs to be done. This doesn't even include the time spent on her family or the summer camp for disadvantaged children that she volunteers at every summer. She's one of a kind and I'm proud to call her a friend.

Kaitlin Posted over a year ago

I was a student at KISD for 3 years, and I worked the Special Olympic Track meet as well as in one of the STAC classrooms, and Coach Boaz was an inspiration to helping these kids succeed in everything step they do! Not only is she always upbeat but she's doing what is best for each student! I'm so glad I had to opportunity to meet Coach Boaz and learn many techniques to help me in my future career in Special Education!

Leah Posted over a year ago

I worked in Keller for ten years. My students were low vision or blind. Cindy was always ready to work collaboratively with these unique learners. She made ways to include all students in the activities. Her attitude was always can do. She is a life-changing person.

Nancy Harvey Posted over a year ago

Cindy Boaz is an exceptional individual. We had the pleasure of working with her for many years through the special olympics. Her energy, patience and dedication knows no limits. She made our daughter feel like she was the only one that mattered when she was around. When in reality, Cindy was juggling a million things at once... but always took time for her. Our daughter is now grown, thus not participating in Special Olympics. We will never forget Coach Boaz. We miss being a part of the team.

Julia Reneau Posted over a year ago

Blessed to know Cindy and seeing how she changes the world - one student at a time. She knows them all by name and loves each one unconditionally no matter how challenging. She never gives up on a kid, she pushes them to succeed.

Emily Newhouse Posted over a year ago

Can't say enough about Coach Boaz. She has helped my grandson in so many ways. Special Olympics has allowed Trinity to grow in self confidence, coordination and being part of a team. Thank you Coach Boaz.

M Posted over a year ago

Coach Boaz has the biggest heart for all student. She will always find away for the students to feel that they have successfully completed their task, and if she sees that it's to hard for them then she will find a way to make it easier for them so they feel good about completing the activity. She goes above and beyond for these students and has a heart of GOLD for each and everyone one if them...not only as a group but she them as successful individuals. Whoever nominated Coach Boaz, nominated a person that has the biggest heart I have ever seen for these students.

Dyann Lundberg Posted over a year ago

Cindy has always demonstrated a servants heart. She has always put her students first, always doing what is best for them. She has a passion for what she does and students love her. Watching her with her Adaptive PE students puts a smile on my face as I see the excitement in her face when her children succeed. She is definitely a life changer and I am blessed to know her.

Lisa Alford Posted over a year ago

Cindy is amazing! She believes in her students - provides engaging activities to stimulate her students learning. She personally helped my own son. He loves his "Boaz"!

PattiP Posted over a year ago

Coach Boaz always has a smile on her face. I am a coworker of hers. I see her in action 2 or 3 times a week. Her attitude towards life, her students, all students, co-workers, is a delight to see. Always makes me smile to see her in the halls, walking fast, talking fast, a student on one side, a new adaptive PE 'tool' in the other( usually something Cindy herself designed for a particular child). Life is too precious not to enjoy it and Coach Cindy helps one and all do that to the fullest. Thank You Coach!!!!

Ang Posted over a year ago

Cindy is absolutely the one you should choose for your life changer! Cindy is always going above and beyond on her job! Not only is she a great teacher, mentor, friend, she'a a great aunt! I have got to see first hand the way she loves on children! Whether it's in school, church, camp, or just playing with her great nephews! It was asked more than once if Cindy wanted kids and she said I already have 150 kids. And how true is that! In her school she has over 150 students and she loves them just like their her own. Watching her love on her kids (and mine) make me a better mom, daughter and friend! Cindy is truly one of a kind and we will always love her! Thank you Cindy for just being you!

Sarah Posted over a year ago

Coach Boaz is willing to help any child she comes in contact with. She is dedicated and always wearing a smile. She is a gem!

Nicole Lyons Posted over a year ago

Cindy Boaz is a saint. Her focus is always on others and putting kids first. I've had the pleasure to be at the Chad Powell Special Olympics Meet for the past few years and Cindy is working so hard the entire day to ensure that it is the best experience possible for all who attend. She is a joy to everyone she meets and is very deserving of the LifeChanger of the Year Award.

Coach Boaz is amazing! She cares for every single student she meets. Her love and enthusiasm for her job is evident at school.

Traci Bellomy Posted over a year ago

Cindy has always had an amazing talent in working with children. She always got more jobs babysitting than anyone else I knew! Her love of children was evident when we're not much more than children ourselves! It is no surprise to me that she has dedicated her career and adult life to helping children who have struggles that too many other people cannot begin to be able to work around. Congratulations, CINDY!

Tracy Hosek Posted over a year ago

Well deserved. Loves those kids and it shows!!!

Linda Letz Posted over a year ago

Cindy truly is one in a million. Her smile, her sense of adventure, her humble attitude, her love of kids, especially the ones who others may dismiss....Cindy is all of this and so much more. After you've been with Cindy even a minute or two, you just feel uplifted. I have volunteered with her many years at Royal Family Kids Camps and I see that love and fun in action. Thank you, Cindy for being a shining light!!!

Hope Olson Posted over a year ago

When I was in high school, I was a student volunteer for Special Olympics. Coach Boaz always treated me with respect and allowed me to take some leadership for the team. I also got to work with Coach Boaz for ESY and learned so much from her example. The students who were under her supervision and direction were always taught and coached with love and patience. I am better for knowing her.

Miranda Angerman Posted over a year ago

My daughter Emma had the chance to work with Coach Boaz when she volunteered to do PE buddies at the school. She was able to learn compassion and acceptance of all with this program lead by Coach Boaz. I'm grateful that she was given this opportunity. It takes a special person with patience, love and understanding to work with special challenges. Keep up the awesome work Coach!!!

Sharrah Gibbs Posted over a year ago

Alicia Malpass Posted over a year ago

Unselfish, caring, patient, loving towards all and faithful are just a few ways to characterize Cindy. Knowing her is knowing how to put other before yourself. Blessed to call her my friend!

Cairn Shundo Posted over a year ago

I agree! Coach Boaz is a wonderful person. I have had the opportunity to see her work with kids in the school setting and my son had the chance to work with her and some of her kids when on honor council. He loved helping with her adaptive P.E. classes. She is creative and very encouraging with the children she works with. Coach Boaz is definitely Life Changer!

Vickie Cothran Posted over a year ago

I taught at the same school as Cindywhen she came to KISD! So I've witnessed her move from a Special Classroom to her current job. She excelled in every area of her journey through the years with her students, parents and co-workers. Student's faces are bright with smiles when she is encouraging them to do their activities! Cindy impressed me with her enthusiasm to help every child.

Debbie Weldon Posted over a year ago

Cindy is a tireless servant. I have witnessed her incredible coordination of the Keller Special Olympics. She encourages children and adults, to do their best with a smile on everyone's face. I have also attended Our Father's Children camp with Cindy and watched her go above and beyond what is expected of her. She truly loves people, especially children! She inspires me!!! I have never met another person like her who demonstrates love by her actions constantly!

Avery Cowan Posted over a year ago

Cindy is most definitely a life changer! I have had the pleasure of seeing her in action through Royal Family Summer camps, a few weekend retreats, mentor club and the annual fundraising auction. She exudes LOVE! Coach Cindy has the ability to make children feel special and important in such a unique way! The world would be a much better place if we had more Cindys!

Ashlee smith Posted over a year ago

She helped our district schools raise a crazy amount of money last year for Special Olympics!! She encouraged kids to donate and helped organize the efforts.

Lisa Moseley Posted over a year ago

Cindy is definitely a life changer! Her energy & positive influence makes her memorable! We definitely miss her presence in OFC retreats in the Spring when she is busy with Special Olympics Meets! Cindy goes the extra mile to bring a smile to the hearts of kids. This summer, she spontaneously offered "Fun Facts" on a daily basis to an 18 year old student, freshly aged out from the foster system, which made that student feel special and treasured!

Jennifer Wilson Posted over a year ago

Coach Boaz was one of the best people to volunteer under. Whilst volunteering I decided to go back to college and she allowed me to complete my Practicum hours with all the Special Olympic athletes. I have never been so humbled than while working with such an amazing team under the direction of Cindy Boaz, she makes a challenge fun so that your goal is attainable. Thank you Coach Cindy Boaz for being awesome.

Monica Harper Posted over a year ago

I have known Coach Cindy for all the years I was a KISD Sped teacher. What has been spoken about her is surely true. One of a kind!!!!

Courtney Exley Posted over a year ago

I have known Coach Boaz since I was in middle school being a buddy for the special education class and I am now a mom to a Kinder! She is truly an amazing woman. She was the coach for a special ed bowling team that we took a teen too and you could tell this is just her calling. These kids are her life and she would do anything for them. She has impacted so many lives that might not have been without her! Truly an inspiration!

Melinda Elliott Posted over a year ago

Cindy is such an inspiration! She has implemented a program with the 4th graders at the school I teach at in which the students get to help out with her adaptive PE classes a couple days a week. Not only does this provide an amazing service opportunity for our students, but allows them to work with, get to know, and form relationships with other students who they may not have the chance to encounter otherwise! I am inspired by her attitude as she recruits students to the program. She knows that working with the special needs population isn't for everyone (especially at 9 years old) and she respects that! My students who have participated in the program LOVE Coach Boaz and her special friends! We are so lucky to have her as part of our team!

Brenda Posted over a year ago

She is amazing! Always ready to help out, always blessing the kiddos and staff she is around! So thankful to have her at Lonestar Elementary!

Aubrey Posted over a year ago

I love Cindy! LifeChanger is a very appropriate name for Cindy along with friend, mentor, and many more. When you see her with kids it is obvious this is Gods calling for her! I have had the honor of watching Cindy interact with kids at church and at camp. Those children always walk away changed. They stand taller, they have smiles that radiate happiness, they look at Cindy like she is their hero. I believe if you asked them many of them would tell you just that, she is their hero.

Kelly Parker Posted over a year ago

Ohhhh coach Boaz... What can I say about you... you are one of the many teachers that have taught Kinley so many things. How to catch, throw, and roll a ball. How to run in place, how to jump.. and most importantly how to do jumping jacks which she does every single night... ??... every time we see a truck with the rangers sticker she calls out for you... we love and miss ya!!!! Love, Kelly and Kinley

Jodi Harmon Posted over a year ago

Coach Boaz is absolutely amazing with our kids . They can't wait for their Adapted PE time every Tuesday and Thursday.... that is the highlight of their day ! She definitely has a servants heart ??!

I see Cindy every Tuesday and Thursday at school and she is always doing her best and nothing less. She pours into each and every kid at Lone Star and makes them feel so worthy and special. She is always such a positive spirit to see walking the halls. I'm grateful for all she does.

Kermit Posted over a year ago

Cindy has been a LifeChanger of children as long as I've known her. The love she pours out to these kids is unconditional. She also brings smiles and laughter and a sense of accomplishment to each child as they all are different. I am not surprised and this is way overdue to Thank her for what she does, as she is my hero too. Way to go Boaz

Melissa Denton Posted over a year ago

Cindy is one of the most incredible people I have ever known. She cares deeply about each child she interacts with and her students can tell that they are loved and supported by her. When she works with my students, they light up when they see her because they know Coach Boaz is going to do something fun with them that day. She is very energetic, positive, and fun, and countless lives have been changed because of her!

Nicole Atkins Posted over a year ago

I second this nomination!! Cindy definitely changed a part of our/our sons life last year! You see, our son is on the Autism Spectrum and is not really an outdoorsy type. Although he has tried and enjoyed (to a certain extent ??) a few sports throughout his young life, nothing really stuck, so we kind of just stopped the sport thing altogether (which is okay, by the way)! Until we moved to Keller and Cindy somehow convinced him to join their Special Olympics Track team. He truly enjoyed it and did well, we were so happy and proud to be able to go cheer him on and see him be proud of himself too ?? He has now not only decided to return to Track, but is thinking about joining the basketball team too! Life changer for sure!!!

Amy Posted over a year ago

Yes yes yes Coach Boaz is a life changer!!! We have a daughter in her adaptive PE class and Coach Boaz is a highlight of her week. She can't wait till Tuesdays & Thursday's to see her. Cindy does work tirelessly to ensure the kids have access to everything possible. She fund raises. She teaches them daily skills. She loves them. She encourages them. And she is happy doing it all too!! We love our 'Coach Boaz' and she has changed our lives forever for the better.

Valerie Jones LVN Posted over a year ago

Jen Cook Posted over a year ago

I can't think of anyone more deserving of this award. I work with Cindy at camps at retreats for abused and neglected children and if she is around, I know that the kids are going to have a blast and feel loved. Cindy makes the people around her feel so special and capable, which is invaluable to kids who don't get that encouragement anywhere else. She is always smiling and serving others. I have learned so much from her on how to engage kids and empower them to do things they didn't think they could. I look up to Cindy and admire her very much.

Samantha Posted over a year ago

Cindy is AMAZING!! A wonderful teacher and person she cares for students and everyone around her!! Love her!!

Rick Trujillo Posted over a year ago

I've been involved with Royal Family Kids Camp for the past 3 years and I can tell you from personal experience that Cindy is a FANTASTIC, CARING person and she loves those kids SO MUCH! I am proud to know her!

Patrick Malpass Posted over a year ago

Cindy is the type of person that is always doing things for other people. From helping abused and neglected children to coaching Special Olympics athletes Cindy's life is consumed with helping others. She has helped my wife and myself get involved in those two areas also. Another thing about Cindy is she is never looking for any recognition, she is doing it out of the goodness of her heart. I think it would be a wonderful thing for Cindy to be recognized for all the amazing things that she does for other people!

Aubrey Posted over a year ago

I love Cindy! LifeChanger is a very appropriate name for Cindy along with friend, mentor, and many more. When you see her with kids it is obvious this is Gods calling for her!
