    The Huntsville ISD Board of Trustees officially named Dr. Scott Sheppard as the district’s Superintendent of Schools with a unanimous vote during a special called board meeting on Monday, January 8, 2018.  This vote to hire came after the 21-day waiting period required by law after he was named the lone finalist in mid-December 2017.  

    Dr. Sheppard has 35 years of experience in the education field serving in multiple roles, including that of teacher and an administrator at various levels. He joined Huntsville ISD from Cypress-Fairbanks ISD in Houston where he served for six years as an Assistant Superintendent overseeing 35 secondary campuses for the third largest school district in Texas.
    Dr. Sheppard’s teaching career began as a band director in Jasper and Kirbyville schools. After 13 years as a teacher and administrator, he became the principal of Kirbyville Junior High. In 2004, Sheppard moved to Katy where he served as the associate principal of Katy High School and later as the principal of Katy Junior High. 

    Dr. Sheppard earned his degrees from Lamar, Stephen F. Austin and Texas A&M University.  We are proud to have him in the Hornet Nation & "Building Champions" of our staff and students every day!
