Heskett Named Lone Finalist for Covington ISD Superintendent
On Monday March 13, 2017, during a regularly scheduled monthly board meeting, Dr. Chris M. Heskett, principal of Valley View High School, was selected as the lone finalist for the position of superintendent of Covington ISD. He was selected from 5 applicants that were interviewed. There were a total of 29 applicants for this position. State law requires a school district to give a 21-day notice of announcing a lone finalist before officially hiring a new superintendent. The board of trustees plans to vote on a contract to hire Dr. Heskett at the regularly scheduled monthly meeting on April 10, 2017.
The current superintendent, Diane Innis, announced at the December 12, 2016, monthly school board meeting her plans to fully retire. Mrs. Innis has held the position of Superintendent of Covington ISD for the past 13 years.
Dr. Heskett has 22 years of experience in education with the last nine years serving as the high School principal at Valley View ISD. He has administrative experience at elementary and middle school levels as well. Considering himself a lifelong learner, he earned his Ed.D at Lamar University in 2016, a master's degree in education from Midwestern State University in 2001, and obtained his undergraduate degree in Kinesiology from Midwestern State University in 1991.
Dr. Heskett and his wife, Keri, will be joining the Covington community in June along with their 7th grade daughter, Peyton. They also have an older daughter, Madison, who will be graduating from Valley View High School this year and will attend the University of North Texas in Denton in the fall.
The Heskett family looks forward to becoming a part of the Covington community!
On April 18, 1906, the town of Covington held an election to determine if the town should incorporate for "free school purposes". Sixty-five votes were cast for incorporation and 15 votes were cast in opposition. Hill County Judge N.J. Smith then declared Covington to be "duly incorporate for free school purposes," the name of the incorporation being "Covington Independent School District."
