The Lubbock Independent School District has named Dr. Kathy Rollo as the sole finalist for superintendent.

A Graduate of Coronado High School, Rollo has worked more than 28 years of experience as a teacher and principal.

Laura Vinson, president of the Board of Trustees said, “We hoped we could find someone with strong West Texas roots, someone who knows our district and has vast experience as a classroom teacher and a principal. In Dr. Rollo, we found an academic leader with proven successes leading students, teachers and principals, with a vision to move Lubbock ISD to the next level.”

She was named Associate Superintendent of Elementary School at Lubbock ISD back in 2013, the same year she graduated with a Doctorate of Educational Leadership at Texas Tech University.

She recently left the Lubbock ISD school district in the summer of 2017 to teach at the College of Education at Texas Tech University.

Rollo will officially be named as superintendent after a 21-day waiting period has expired. She will be replacing superintendent Berhl Robertson, Jr., who announced his retirement in October.

The Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees met on Monday, December 18th, and elected Rollo as the sole finalist after a 6 – 1 vote.
