The faculty searches for the Clinical Associate Professor of Educational Leadership were successful. Drs. Robert Muller (Superintendent, Killeen ISD) and Dr. Karen Smith (Associate Dean, College of Education, Sam Houston State University) have both accepted the offers to join the department as Clinical Associate Professors in fall 2014.  The department would like to express gratitude to Dr. Beverly Irby, Chair of the Search Committee and to the following members of the committee: Drs. Abelardo Saavedra, Gwen Webb-Hasan, Judy Sandlin, and Glenda Burns (faculty from outside the Department), Avery Pavliska and Detra Johnson (Graduate Student Advisory Board Representative) for their time and effort invested in the search process. Thank you to Marie Shelfer and Jessica Alvarado for the support they provided to the committee members. Because of their passion, dedication and hard work, we have been able to fill two positions in a timely manner. To all the students, faculty and staff who attended the teaching presentations, thank you for your invaluable input which helped us in arriving at the decision to extend job offers to these two outstanding faculty.
