Parents, educators discuss process for hiring new Pine Tree athletic director

Posted: Updated:

Public meetings were held Wednesday to discuss a local school district's search for a new athletic director.

Pine Tree ISD held public meetings to inform parents about the process of the search for a new athletic director.

In light of previous coach Derek Fitzhenry's departure, school officials took questions on how the process will work, with the possibility of hiring a head coach and separate athletic director.

Though the job has not been posted, parents were concerned that the right person be found for the AD position.

"It is important to all of us in the community that the person they bring into the position has a vested interest in the community, that we're not a stepping stone to the next place they go. That they are going to stay here and be a part of us," said one parent in attendance.

District officials say they are planning to make a hire no later than March 7th.
