The New Boston ISD Board of Trustees announced the lone finalist in their search for a superintendent in a special called board meeting on Tuesday night.  Brian Bobbitt, current Malta ISD superintendent is set to step in to the position vacated by Dr. Rose Mary Neshyba at the close of the 2017-18 school year.  As per Texas state law, there is a 21 day waiting period from the time the lone finalist is named until he/she is officially hired as superintendent.

Mr. Bobbitt is a 1996 graduate of New Boston High School.  He and his wife Amy have two sons, Jacob and Connor. Bobbitt began his career as a teacher and coach at Maud ISD, Simms ISD, and at New Boston ISD.  After eight years teaching and coaching, he was promoted to assistant principal at New Boston ISD, a position he held for one year before promoting once again to high school principal.  He remained the principal of New Boston High School for six years before accepting the position of superintendent at Malta ISD, where he has been for the last three years.

Malta ISD Board of Trustees member Doug Russell says the news is bittersweet.  “We are happy for Mr. Bobbitt, but we hate to see him go,” Russell said. “Malta has been very successful under his leadership and New Boston is getting a very good and hard working superintendent.”

New Boston ISD Board of Trustees President Rob Carr says he believes the board made a good pick in selecting Bobbitt.  “The Board feels very confident in what Bobbitt is going to do for our school,” he said. “I look forward to the future.”

Bobbitt, too, says he looks forward to his future at NBISD.  “I’m truly excited to be here,” Bobbitt told The Tribune. “I’m excited for the opportunity to come back to a school district and community that I care about deeply, and want to do everything I can to ensure the children of New Boston have the best possible education.”
