PRESS RELEASE: PISD Names Lone Finalist for Superintendent
March 24, 2023
The Peaster ISD Board of Trustees is excited to announce the selection of Dr. Kendra Pittman as the lone finalist for the position of Peaster ISD Superintendent. Dr. Pittman has spent the last 5 years as the Assistant and then Associate Superintendent for Royal ISD, a rapidly growing 4A district in southeast Texas. She brings a wealth of experience in improving schools over her 23 year career in education, as a teacher, coach, dean of instruction, principal, and senior administrator.
People who have worked with Dr. Pittman sing her praises, identifying her ability to form relationships with both staff and the community and her unique skills across the spectrum of education - dramatically improving academic success, managing the budget of a growing district earning a superior financial rating, expanding extracurricular opportunities to include record breaking FFA participation, focusing on UIL academic teams that led to a state title, improving athletics, and expanding both dual credit and Career and Technology Education programs to ensure all students are set up for success after high school. Dr. Pittman is a servant leader and embodies the long-standing values that make Peaster, Peaster.
Dr. Pittman, her husband, Terry, an educational consultant and recently retired Superintendent himself, and their two-year-old son are excited about the move to Peaster.
"I am excited to join the Greyhound community as your next Superintendent. I'm dedicated to continuing the rich traditions of the District while partnering with the Peaster ISD team to build upon what makes Peaster such a wonderful place for students and their families. My husband and I are looking forward to putting down roots and raising our son Brolin in a community that shares our family's values," Dr. Pittman said.
Royal ISD knows Dr. Pittman will be greatly missed, but RISD wishes her well and congratulates her on her new role at Peaster ISD.
“Although we are saddened to lose Dr Pittman from our district, we share in her joy of celebrating her move into the superintendency. Dr. Pittman has made tremendous contributions to the district leading to improvements across the board. Whether it be at the Ag Barn, the athletics fields or to the classrooms, Kendra’s enthusiasm is contagious when it comes district pride!" Royal ISD Board President, Scott Hartman said.
Please welcome Dr. Pittman and her family to Peaster!
