David Alexander is new Ascension Public Schools superintendent
DONALDSONVILLE - The Ascension Parish School Board has selected David Alexander as its new superintendent.
A native of Ruston, Alexander was formerly employed as a teacher at Lee High for nine years, principal of Dutchtown High School before eventually retiring as Ascension Parish director of high schools. Alexander is known not only for his prowess as an educational administrator, but also as a passionate coach on the football gridiron.
Alexander and his wife have been married for 30 years and have two children.
There was noted opposition from one school board member who walked out during the meeting in opposition. The walkout didn’t change the end result, however, as the vote ended in Alexander getting the nod.
Interim Ascension Public Schools Superintendent A. Denise Graves said the board made the decision because they felt Alexander assuming the role would be in the best interest of the students.
