Penny Fleet has been named the lone finalist for the position of Superintendent by the Spring Hill ISD Board of Trustees. Fleet has served as SHISD Interim Superintendent since January.
“Her years of experience and her knowledge from serving at every level of education will prove to be a valuable asset in leading the district,” said Board President Mark White. “Upon being named interim superintendent she provided strong leadership and stability at a time when the district needed it. We were prepared to conduct an extensive search, however because her performance was at such a high level we realized early on that we had something special in Mrs. Fleet. We believe she is the best person to lead Spring Hill. She has earned this.”
Fleet has 37 years of service in education, which includes ten years as a classroom teacher and coach, 12 years in administration, and 15 years at Spring Hill working in curriculum and special programs. She received her Bachelor of Science from Centenary College of Louisiana, and her Masters in Administrative Education and Superintendent Certification from Stephen F. Austin State University.
The board will meet to officially name Fleet Superintendent following the state-required 21 day waiting period.
