After weeks of interviews, the Alvord school board unanimously agreed to name Dr. Randy Brown the lone finalist for the superintendent position Thursday night.

“There were several outstanding applicants,” Board President Vic Czerniack said. “This was a very difficult choice, only because there were so many strong candidates. The second round was even harder.”

Though the number of strong candidates made the selection process challenging, Czerniack said that Brown’s philosophy and thought process allowed him to stand out.

“His ideas and logic just edged the competition,” Czerniack said. “All of the candidates were really strong and a credit to their profession.”

John Schedcik proposed the naming of Brown, and Lance Thweatt seconded before the unanimous vote was cast.

Brown was superintendent at Coahoma ISD for three years before taking the superintendent position at Snyder Aug. 22, 2011, where he stayed until applying for the Alvord job.

He has also worked at Levelland ISD (his alma mater) as a principal, and Motley County ISD.

Brown received a Bachelor of Science degree from Eastern New Mexico University before earning a Masters of Education degree from Texas A&M University at Commerce.

He earned a Doctorate of Education in Education Leadership from Texas Tech University.

Brown’s wife, Andrea, is a registered nurse and the couple have two sons, Zachary, 14, and Jaxon, 8.

Alvord ISD must wait a state-mandated 21 days before the hiring becomes official.
