A pioneer in the education technology space, Michael Broyles is the CEO at The Scholastic Network. He began his journey learning the ins and outs of hard work on his family farm in Lamesa, TX. Broyles credits this experience with giving him the necessary tools to become an entrepreneur later in life. In 2004, he married his high school sweetheart, Amber, and with much encouragement from her, finished his degree at Texas Tech by driving the 120 miles round trip to Lubbock every day. In 2006, the pair moved to San Antonio where Broyles served as a Director of Marketing and Sales and operated several businesses dedicated to digital communications. Recognizing the challenges of communication in schools, he began an inspired journey into education. Michael built a one-of-a-kind digital platform that would ultimately become The Scholastic Network, currently operating in 80+ school districts in Texas and expanding into other states. Outside of work, Broyles enjoys spending time with his family.
