Russell is a native of Medina County and the District he serves. His interest in water resources was developed during his days at Medina Valley High School when the formation of the Edwards Aquifer Authority was underway. That interest led him to attend Texas A&M University where he received both his Bachelorís and Masterís degrees in agricultural engineering. During his Masterís program, Russell led the outreach for Texas AgriLife Extension Service, as a part of the new regional water planning process, on the ability to manage groundwater through groundwater conservation districts.
