Mrs. Angela Fitzpatrick, a native of Marshall who enters her 19th year as a public school educator in 2023-2024, was named lone finalist for Superintendent of Schools in Karnack ISD on August 2, 2023. Fitzpatrick took the reins of KISD from Mrs. Amy Dickson, who will retire in December 2023 after seven years serving as Superintendent.

“It is my goal to build upon the Karnack Independent School District’s successes, sustain the district’s pride, and continue to make a difference in the lives of students,” said Fitzpatrick, who spent the first 18 years of her career in Marshall ISD. “I will apply myself diligently to this task and work tirelessly with the Board to carry out their vision for KISD.”

Fitzpatrick is a 1994 graduate of Marshall High School who went on to earn her Bachelor of Arts from Wiley College and a Master of Education from LeTourneau University. Her 18 years in Marshall began as an instructional aide, before rising to become an assistant principal and then a principal in MISD.

Fitzpatrick was principal of Sam Houston Middle School from 2012-2017, and then became principal of the new David Crockett Elementary when it opened in the fall of 2017. She had been named principal of Sam Houston STEM Academy earlier this summer.

Fitzpatrick began the 2023-2024 school year working alongside Dickson, who will remain with the district through her official retirement date of Dec. 15 after 30 years as a public school educator.

Karnack ISD serves students in grades PreK through 8 from the Karnack, Uncertain and greater Caddo Lake areas.

“I will strive to earn the respect of Karnack ISD administrators, teachers, staff, and the greater community because I know that when mutual respect occurs, morale is high, and teamwork is evident,” Fitzpatrick said. “I am honored to support and serve the staff of Karnack ISD as we create exceptional learning experiences for students.”

Karnack ISD will welcome its students back for the 2023-2024 school year with the first day of school on Monday, Aug. 14.
