Dr. Rob Thornell has been named the district’s deputy superintendent for curriculum and instruction.

Thornell came to the district as principal of Rhome’s Chisholm Trail Middle School in 2007.

District Director of Communications Emily Conklin has been named executive director of communications, where she’ll oversee communications, media relations, the Partners in Education program, advertising and the Northwest ISD Education Foundation.

Mark Vechione will serve as executive director of purchasing and contract management. Vechione previously served as director of purchasing and contract management.
