Tommy Hunter, superintendent at Brownsboro ISD, was named lone finalist for the corresponding position in Sanger ISD during a board meeting on May 8.
Hunter was selected from more than 90 applicants over several rounds of interviews. He is expected to be formally hired at a regular school board meeting on May 30.
Hunter has worked in education for 24 years, the past three of which were in his current position.
Through a district press release, Hunter reportedly said he looks to continue in the traditions of Sanger ISD.
"As a new superintendent, I will look to continue these great success, while creating a positive, safe learning environment for both students and staff," he said.
Hunter will take the reins from interim Superintendent Kent Crutsinger. In turn, Crutsinger took over in January following the resignation of Sandra McCoy-Jackson.
While the exact reasons behind and terms of her resignation were not publicly available, it was reported that McCoy-Jackson will be paid through the end of her contract.
