The SISD Board of Trustees approves Erik Kirkpatrick as principal of Seminole High School

The Board of Trustees met on Monday, May 8th to officially approve Kirkpatrick as the new principal; which comes as Robert Chappell retires after 21 years with Seminole ISD. 

“We are beyond excited to become a part of the Tribe,” stated Kirkpatrick. “Seminole High School is known throughout the region and state as a school of excellence that has a passion for kids and the community it serves.”

Kirkpatrick brings 26 years of experience in the educational profession. His expertise includes a broad range of classroom, coaching, and administrative experience at all levels; including elementary, secondary, and collegiate. During his approximate fourteen years at Childress ISD, he coached, served as the High School Assistant Principal, High School Principal, and Director of Special Education for the Greenbelt Shared Services Arrangement. For the past six years he has served at Frenship High School where he was a teacher, coach, and assistant principal. His wife, Amanda, will join the high school staff where she will teach math and coach.  

We are excited to welcome Mr. Kirkpatrick and Coach Kirkpatrick to the TRIBE!
