Current Coppell ISD superintendent Dr. Mike Waldrip was named as the lone finalist for the Frisco ISD superintendent vacancy in a specially called meeting Monday.

The Frisco ISD Board of Trustees has named former Liberty principal Dr. Mike Waldrip the lone finalist in the search for a replacement for the retiring Dr. Jeremy Lyon.

Waldrip, the current superintendent of Coppell ISD, worked in Frisco ISD for several years before moving to Coppell.

“Hiring a superintendent is the most far-reaching decision a school board will ever make,” FISD Board of Trustees president Anne McCausland said in a release on the FISD website. “This Board focused its energies to find the best fit for our students, staff, parents and community. We are thrilled to have Dr. Mike Waldrip continue our commitment to student achievement and keep Frisco ISD a destination district.”

A familiar face on campus, Waldrip who opened Liberty High School in 2006, will officially take the reigns after a state-mandated 21 day waiting period.

“Dr. Waldrip was an excellent choice for the superintendent of Frisco ISD,” social studies teacher Tim Johnnes said. “I think he is going to bring a lot of passion and enthusiasm to the district. He was here at Liberty for quite a few years in the very beginning, so I know, personally, how great he is.”
