Matthews named interim principal at NHS

Dr. Kenneth Matthews, EdD, was named this week interim principal at Nacogdoches High School.

Matthews is filling the vacancy created last month when Dr. Rom Crespo left to take a similar position at a high school located in Baytown.

“This will allow us to have a leader in place while we move forward with the process of bringing in a principal,” said NISD Superintendent Dr. Gabriel Trujillo.

Last month, the superintendent met with NHS staff, student leaders and parent groups to begin the undertaking of hiring a new principal. Trujillo said NISD is targeting early next year for finalizing a hire.

Matthews comes to NHS with wide-ranging experience in the public and private sector. He has served as a principal in Converse Judson ISD, where he was named Region IV Principal of the year. He also served as a principal with Alief ISD.

“We’re thrilled to have Dr. Matthews on board to help us through this timeframe,” said Trujillo. “His presence gives us the time to thoroughly research and prepare a gameplan to have a new principal in place at NHS.”
