Dyann Daniel White is an 11-year veteran of the appraisal district and had been serving as deputy chief appraiser. The Milam Appraisal District (AD) has a new chief appraiser and she’s from Rockdale.

Dyann Daniel White was named the new chief appraiser Monday by a unanimous vote of AD board members after an executive session.

The meeting, originally scheduled for Thursday was moved to Monday because of the Cameron Yoemen’s state championship football game in Arlington Thursday night.

White replaces Pat Moraw who retired after a 31-year career with the appraisal district.

White assumed her new duties immediately af ter Monday’s meeting.

Directors were in a “promote from within” mood. White was the only candidate formally interviewed for the position.

“Right after Pat retired I said I would be interested in the position,” White said. “I sure appreciate the board’s support.”

White is an 11-year veteran of the AD—which was formerly known as the Milam County Appraisal District (MCAD)—and had been serving as deputy chief appraiser.

“I really enjoy working here, meeting and helping people and I’m anxious to get going,” White said. “I actually feel like Pat has trained me for this job.”

White is a 1995 graduate of Rockdale High School and continues to reside in Rockdale.

She has been certified as a registered chief appraiser after completing a two-year course at the Chief Appraiser Institute.

The district went through a series of chief appraisers after being formed but found stability in Moraw who spent more than 25 years in that job.
