District hosts welcome reception tonight at Old Post Office
Kilgore Intermediate School Principal Kim Slayter introduces new Kilgore ISD Superintendent Dr. Andy Baker to the campus’ faculty and staff members during a Monday morning meet-and-greet session in the KISD library. Baker toured all five Kilgore ISD campuses to begin his first week at the district, and staffers hosted an open to the public reception evening at Kilgore’s Old Post Office venue. During their December school meeting, KISD trustees unanimously chose Baker to lead the district, taking over from interim superintendent Mike Morrison, holding the reins since Cara Cook’s departure in July 2018.
