LISD Names New Superintendent

At 7:27 p.m. the meeting went into closed session. The members of the LISD board of trustees privately deliberated as to who would be the Interim Superintendent. The name plate that once read Jack Clemmons, removed from the woodwork.

An hour later, the board returned. "It is my honor to nominate Wayne Havens as our Interim Superintendent of the Lubbock Independent School District," said Trustee Linda DeLeon.

The motion passed unanimously. The board erupted into applause. Trustee Roy Grimes said Havens was the only name discussed during deliberations. "He's the finalist, he is it," he said.

As to reports that Clemmons' resignation was forced? "No comment on that! I have told everyone, 'cause I got a copy of his letter, and the first paragraph he says he's retiring, and that was that," said Grimes.

Havens said his first order of business is to fill in holes. "Well, I think the first thing we need to do is get our organizational chart. We've got some holes; we've got a finance position that's open, and another position according to how we organize. So you need to get that set before you start trying to put initiatives in place that'll help our district," he said.

Although Havens has been named "Interim" Superintendent, the board intends to make him permanent Superintendent after a mandatory three week waiting period. As Trustee Grimes put it, even if someone else sent in their resume, "They'd be wasting their time."
