NISD: School board welcomes Ron Hastings as new member
Ron Hastings, Northwest ISD’s newest school board member, was officially sworn in for Place 7 at the district’s May 29 school board meeting.
“I’m looking forward to serving kids and providing them with the tools to be successful,” said Hastings. “I’m glad to be back in Northwest ISD.”
Mr. Hastings came to Northwest ISD nearly 20 years ago as an assistant principal at Northwest High School and later became associate principal for curriculum and instruction. He retired from a 32-year career in education as the director of counseling and campus support in Eagle Mountain Saginaw ISD. Mr. Hastings is a proud supporter of public education and has a family with a background in the field – his father was a superintendent and college professor.
He and his wife of 48 years have two children and five grandchildren; two of those grandchildren attend Northwest ISD schools. Mr. Hastings is an avid University of Oklahoma Sooner fan and tries to attend all of the home football games each fall. He enjoys fixing things and currently has an old tractor he is repairing.
“I feel called to serve our community as a school board member,” he said. “The opportunity to continue to help kids and give back to our community is important to me.”
