Lubbock ISD Superintendent Retiring

NewsChannel 11 has learned that Lubbock ISD Superintendent Wayne Havens will announce his retirement at 10 a.m. Friday.  

Sources tell NewsChannel 11 that Havens will stay on with the district up until December 2009 if needed, but the idea is to find his successor prior to the next school year. 

Havens succeeded Jack Clemmons as Superintendent in 2003.  Havens said at the time he was reluctant to take the job because he was happy with his job, Assistant Superintendent, and had no aspirations of advancement.  However, LISD Board members convinced him to go ahead and accept because they felt the district needed stability and strength of leadership after the unexpected departure of Clemmons.

Havens has been highly respected by both Board Members and teachers.  Prior to joining the LISD front office Havens was Principal of Coronado High, and Principal of Hutchinson Junior High (now called Hutchinson Middle School).
