LUBBOCK, Texas -

(Press Release) 

Keith Bryant, superintendent of Lubbock-Cooper ISD, has been named the 2019 Superintendent of the Year by the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB).

His win was announced in Dallas at the recent Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA)/TASB Convention. Bryant was selected from a group of state finalists that included Charles Dupre, Fort Bend ISD, Region 4; Walter Jackson, Brenham ISD, Region 6; Tylor Chaplin, Burkburnett ISD, Region 9; and Bruce Gearing, Dripping Springs ISD, Region 13. (Dripping Springs ISD is the nominating district. Gearing is now serving Leander ISD.)

Bryant has led Lubbock-Cooper ISD for six years, where he serves more than 7,000 students.  He has been in education administration for 23 years. Bryant earned his bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, and superintendent certification from Texas Tech University.  

The selection committee cited Bryant’s selfless service to the district, its staff, and its students. That includes the premium he places on listening with an open mind to all voices—not only listening attentively to teacher needs but to student input. Committee members noted that through such initiatives as the district’s student-comprised Superintendent Advisory Council, Bryant makes it clear that students come first. Noted earlier in the awards process were Bryant’s thoughts on the future of public education and the necessity for educators to embrace change, including new technology. 

The districts of the winning superintendent and four state finalists receive an award from Balfour, program underwriter. Bryant also will receive a Superintendent of the Year ring from Balfour.

Lubbock-Cooper ISD plans to honor Bryant with a reception on Thursday, October 17.
