LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -
Lubbock Cooper ISD has named Keith Bryant as its new superintendent.
Bryant is currently the superintendent for Bullard ISD south of Tyler, TX.
He is a Lamesa native and Texas Tech graduate who previously worked for the Lamesa school district.
Bryant says he's looking forward to building on an already strong foundation at Cooper.
"I think we want to make sure we continue to hold high academic standards and have the success that has been achieved academically, look to expand course offerings for kids that want to go to college and the workforce, to continue to support extracurricular activities that keep kids involved in education," Bryant said.
Bryant will be replacing Pat Henderson who is stepping down after 19 years as Cooper's superintendent.
