INTERIM SUPERINTENDENT PLACEMENT
CONSTRUCTION AND SOFTWARE REPRESENTATIVE
LoneStar Education Services is my consulting business. I can serve as an interim

2005–2010 Richland Springs ISD, Richland Springs, Texas
I was hired as the interim superintendent at Richland Springs School District and asked to
stay permanently soon after. During my tenure, we constructed a new cafetorium, added a
horticulture program, and in three years added $750,000 to the fund balance. Our football
team won the six-man state championship three times. Additionally, we implemented a
distance laboratory for joint high school and college credit.
1998–2003 Lindsay ISD, Lindsay, Texas
Lindsay ISD hired me to maintain the tradition of community pride in their schools and the
involvement of parents in their children’s education. During my tenure, we were the UIL
State Champions for three years and second in State for two years. For the five years I
served, Lindsay was rated Exemplary by the Texas Education Agency.
1995–1998 Gary ISD, Gary, Texas
At Gary, my board/superintendent relationship was very positive and and the district had
much success in academic and extra curricular activities. State standardized testing
improved each year. We added courses in computer-aided design, horticulture, and business
information systems. I pushed for and helped secure a $2.5 million bond to build elementary
classrooms, renovate the cafetorium, and build a central library.
1993–1995 Leakey ISD, Leakey, Texas
Leakey was my first superintendency after completing my certification work. While at
Leakey test scores improved, the campus was rated Recognized, and the district received the
Governor’s Award for Excellence and started a program of improvement for all facilities on
campus. I initiated programs in inclusion, computer-based instruction, intervention, tutorials,
and other instructional programs.
1983–1993 Everman ISD, Everman, Texas
At Everman ISD, I supervised 15 secondary and junior high vocational programs for three
years. I assisted in the planning and construction of a new vocational facility as a part of a
bond program. I implemented programs in auto mechanics, micro-computer application,
data processing, horticulture, and word processing.
From 1985 to 1987, I was asked by the Everman superintendent to assume the leadership at
two elementary schools affected by disciplinary problems. I was successful in restructuring
programs, strengthening student discipline, and improving teacher morale. I continued all of
my vocational administrative duties while serving as the interim principal.
At Everman, I was promoted to assistant superintendent, where I experienced all aspects of
school administration. I was involved in budgeting, school finance, curriculum development
and management, personnel management, PEIMS reporting, staff development, and public
relations. I also managed the district’s disciplinary alternative school.
1969–1983 Other Work Experience
Before beginning my career in school administration, I taught distributive education at
Bangs High School from 1969 to 1973 and marketing education at Crowley ISD from 1975
to 1979. I was the plant manager of the Grain Handling Corporation in Hereford, Texas,
from 1973 to 1975 and was the owner and manager of Winn’s Picture Frame and Art Supply
