With less than a week under his belt as the Navasota School District’s new Superintendent, Dr. Stu Musick admitted to being at a disadvantage at the recent State of the City event.
But thanks to his staff, he did have some exciting news about the NISD to share, beginning with the high school’s senior class.
Of the 152 Seniors, he reported, 105 of them (2/3) have already been accepted into college or university or the military in one form or fashion.
Musick spent nearly a half-hour detailing other good news from within the district, as well, including the recent nomination of world history teacher Heather Bright for the National Society of High School Scholars’ Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction Award.
Music said it is a fantastic time for the district to be partnering with both the County of Grimes and the City of Navasota and all of the wonderful things that are about to happen not only this year, but in our 5-year plan, our 10-year plan and down the road.
And as is the case with so much of life in the 21st Century, what he sees down the road has a lot to do with technology.
He says we are trying to create and prepare students for professions that may not happen to have even been created yet. Because it happens so quickly, professions are popping up more quickly than we can prepare for them.
Musick comes to Navasota from Hubbard, Texas, north east of Waco, where the NISD’s new superintendent has already racked-up more than a quarter1century of educational experience so far.
