Northwest ISD invites the community to meet Dr. David Hicks, incoming superintendent of schools, on Tuesday, May 24, with additional events to get to know Dr. Hicks to follow.

The event will last from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in the Northwest ISD administration building's board room, located at 2001 Texan Drive in Justin. All community members are welcome to attend, including students, families, teachers, staff and others.

Additional opportunities to meet Dr. Hicks will take place, including Facebook Live video chats and high school zone events in the fall.

The Northwest ISD Board of Trustees named Dr. Hicks as the next superintendent following an extensive community feedback process. Dr. Hicks joins Northwest ISD after spending six years as superintendent of Sherman ISD. He also has experience at fast-growth school districts, as he previously served as area superintendent of secondary programs at nearby Denton ISD.

Dr. Hicks believes in providing high-quality academic programs at every level alongside top-tier extracurricular programs while ensuring the needs of every child are met. He has spent the past month meeting with Dr. Ryder Warren, retiring superintendent, as well as district staff and community leaders.

Tuesday, May 17, will mark Dr. Hicks' first official day as superintendent.
