• Muenster ISD Welcomes New Superintendent

    Lone Finalist for Superintendent Position announcement (Feb. 18, 2022)

    The MISD Board of Directors would like to announce the unanimous decision to name Scott Bicknell as Lone Finalist for Superintendent of Muenster ISD.  

    Prior to beginning the search, the board polled teachers and staff as to the characteristics they wish to see that align with MISD’s “Tradition of Success”.  

    “We believe Mr. Bicknell fits these characteristics that were high on their list as well as what the Board of Trustees were looking for”, said Board President, Darren Bindel.  “Mr. Bicknell is a servant leader who, we believe, will fill this role with enthusiasm and will empower our students and staff to keep raising the bar.  Most of his academic career has been in small rural schools, so we feel he will fit in well with the community of Muenster.”

    Mr Bicknell has been an administrator for 7 years at Glasscock County ISD, currently serving as their Superintendent for the last 4 years.  While at Glasscock County, Mr Bicknell has attained many accomplishments.  He achieved the mark of Superior Achievement, TEA’s rating per the Financial Integrity Rating System.  He also supervised 313 agreements, oversaw Chapter 49 district recapture, was a founding member of the Education Foundation of Glasscock County and orchestrated a $1 million dollar donation to the Foundation.  The most recent feat was for Garden City Elementary, part of Glasscock County ISD, to be nominated as a 2022 National Blue Ribbon School.   

     “I am very excited to be named the lone finalist for the Muenster ISD superintendent job.  There is a long standing tradition of excellence here, and it will be an honor to continue this and to help lead the district into future growth and success. My family and I are looking forward to being a part of this incredible community” said Bicknell.
