Dr. Jeremy Glenn

Granbury ISD school board trustees nominated superintendent Dr. Jeremy Glenn for Superintendent of the Year.  The board adopted a nominating resolution during its regular monthly meeting on April 12, 2021. 

“Under Dr. Glenn's solid leadership, direction of staff, positive tone set in our schools, sound fiscal management and great community involvement, Granbury ISD has truly prospered and become the envy among our peers in the region since his coming aboard,” commented board president Mark Jackson. “In addition to this, his steady hand led us through the strangest of times in the last year for all school boards across the State. The COVID-19 pandemic and all the headaches it brought were sustainable because of his innovative ideas.” 

Dr. Glenn has 21 years of educational experience.  He previously led Waxahachie ISD and Central Heights ISD near Nacogdoches.  Dr. Glenn's prior experience includes service as assistant superintendent and high school principal in Trinity and as an English teacher and coach in Mineola. 

The superintendent holds a doctorate degree in educational leadership from Sam Houston State University.  He earned a master’s degree in educational administration from the University of Texas at Tyler, where he also completed his bachelor's degree in political science with a minor in English. 

The Superintendent of the Year (SOTY) award program is sponsored by the Texas Association of School Boards.  Initial nominations are submitted to the education service centers for regional consideration.  Regional finalists are then forwarded for evaluation by a statewide committee. 

Nominees must be in at least their third year of service with a district, be a member of the Texas Association of School Administrators, hold a Texas superintendent certificate and meet ongoing professional education requirements, and be active as of the 2021 TASA/TASB state convention in September. 

Since 1984, the award program has honored outstanding administrators for achievement and excellence in public school administration. These school leaders exhibit exemplary and visionary leadership toward improving student performance. They are chosen for their strong leadership skills, dedication to improving the quality of education in their districts, and commitment to public support and involvement in education.
