After interviewing three candidates and an extended executive session, Crockett Independent School District trustees named Dr. Doug Moore as the sole finalist for the position of superintendent of schools.
The special Wednesday night, July 1 meeting was called to order and trustees immediately went into executive session at 5:38 p.m.
The first candidate to be interviewed for the position of superintendent was Dr. Ianthia Fisher.
Next to be interviewed was David Baxter and the final applicant to meet with trustees was Moore.
This was the second round of interviews for the trio being considered by trustees.
The interviews were concluded about 9 p.m. and trustees emerged from the executive session about 10 p.m. announcing Moore as the sole finalist.
CISD attorney Wayne Haglund participated in the interviews with trustees.
Moore, who presently lives in Trinity, has 41 years experience in education including 10 years as a teacher, coach, and athletic director; three years as a high school principal and 28 years as a superintendent.
His background as a superintendent includes such districts as Oakwood, Trinity, Liberty, Sealy and Edinburg.
He has worked in Class A to Class 5A districts and with student populations ranging from 200 to 30,000.
He is married to Laura and they have two adult children who live in California.
“I feel honored to be selected as the superintendent for Crockett ISD and look forward to working with a united board and a community that has always excelled in academics and athletics,” said Moore.
By state law the contract will be executed 21 days from the date of Moore’s appointment as the sole finalist.
