Superintendents: Kemp Independent School District

Superintendents of Schools, Kemp Independent School District

Kemp, Texas

With the help of Ms. Kim Johnson, Kemp Independent School District, and in appreciation to the former Superintendent of Schools, James Whitehead, the following list of superintendents was gleaned from the available school board minutes dated from October 18, 1937, to August 12, 1999. A telephone call to the superintendent’s office in 2011 brought the list up to date. According to Ms. Johnson, the records prior to 1937 were probably lost during a fire in the 1960s.
