Thank you, CFISD!

Dear CFISD Community,

After 42 years as an educator, 32 years as superintendent and 12 years in CFISD, I am announcing my retirement effective Dec. 31, 2023.  

This is the hardest decision I have ever had to make. To be superintendent of Cypress-Fairbanks ISD has been the capstone of a blessed career. The friends I’ve made, being involved in the community and seeing so many dedicated educators guide our students to reach their goals has been a blessing. My wife, Cindy, and I love it here so much that we are making Cy-Fair our forever home.  

Although the Board of Trustees will be searching for a new superintendent, I will be here for the remainder of the calendar year. I promise to advocate for our staff and students until the last day.

Together, we have achieved so much over the past 12 years, and the key word is together. In good times and bad, we are always stronger together. I am looking forward to new experiences and challenges in this next stage of my life, but the memories I’ve made over the past 12 years will continue to bring a smile to my face.  

Thank you for your support and prayers for our community, our students and me. God bless you!
