Saturday afternoon, the Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees unanimously named Dr. Berhl Robertson the lone finalist to fill the vacant superintendent's position.  The announcement was made in between graduation ceremonies at the United Spirit Arena.

Dr. Robertson was hired by Lubbock ISD as Chief Administrative Officer in 2009. He is also serving as interim superintendent with the departure of Dr. Karen Garza. Before being hired by LISD, Robertson was superintendent for both Roosevelt and Southland ISD's.

Robertson graduated from Texas Tech in 1985 with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture Education and a Doctorate of Education in 2005. He also earned various certifications from Texas Tech, including Special Education Certification in 1993 and Superintendent Certification in 1995.
