Mineola ISD interim superintendent named


Randy Hancock was unanimously voted as interim superintendent by the MISD board Tuesday, Sept. 17. The board spent two hours in closed session interviewing two candidates, followed by a heated discussion before voting.

Hancock was one of three interviewed of the 14 applications received for the position of interim superintendent. 

In June 2011, Hancock retired from Royce City ISD after five years serving as superintendent.  He had worked in education for 34 years. 

Hancock was the facilitator of MISD goal-setting workshop in March where he noted that the board establishes goals and the administration achieves them.

Kim Tunnell, former superintendent, gave her final resignation and separation agreement on Aug. 22 but will remain as special assistant to Hancock until Jan. 31 or until other employment is secured.
