Bastrop ISD Superintendent Steve Murray was recently selected as the Texas Association of Suburban/Mid-Urban Schools president for 2015-16.
Murray’s term will began this summer, as the association celebrates its 45th year serving as a network for superintendents from some of the state's premier school districts.
“I am proud and excited to serve as the president for the best superintendent’s organization in Texas,” Bastrop ISD Steve Murray said. “TAS/MUS counts in its membership many of the brightest and most innovative school district leaders in our state. I hope my selection as TAS/MUS president serves as a point of pride for Bastrop ISD’s staff, parents and students.”
The organization's mission is centered on a commitment to providing exceptional professional development for today's school leaders, focusing on the unique challenges of suburban and mid-urban school districts. Their goal is to expand on programs that benefit superintendents and, in turn, the school districts they represent. The networking and professional growth opportunities awarded to TAS/MUS members are numerous and of high quality.
“Mr. Murray’s leadership of this organization shows his commitment to being a strong leader for our schools and our students, not only in Bastrop ISD, but in our great state as well,” Bastrop ISD Board President James Allen said. “We are proud of him for this selection and know he will be a great asset in this role.”
As a leader in Texas public education, Murray encourages his staff and colleagues to stay involved, sharpen their skills and work together to address the challenges facing public education today.
Murray is in his 16th year as a superintendent, has been a member of TAS/MUS since 2005 and has served on the organization’s board for three years. He is also a member of Cedar Creek Rotary, Texas Association of Community Schools, Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) and the American Association of School Administrators. TAS/MUS is a department of TASA.
