The Abilene Independent School District (AISD) Board of Trustees has announced Dr. John Kuhn, Ed.D., as the lone finalist for the position of Superintendent of Schools, bringing 27 years of experience in public education to the district.

Dr. Kuhn currently serves as the Superintendent of Schools for Mineral Wells ISD, a position he has held since 2016. Prior to this, he served as superintendent of Perrin-Whitt CISD and held various roles including high school principal, assistant principal, teacher, and bus driver in Mineral Wells and Graford Independent School Districts.

Recognized as a vocal advocate for public education in Texas, Dr. Kuhn specializes in creating positive learning environments for all students, improving academic outcomes and family engagement, supporting faculty and staff growth, and strategic planning and innovative leadership in education.

“I am incredibly humbled by the trust placed in me by the AISD Board of Trustees,” said Dr. Kuhn. “I take the charge of serving as AISD superintendent extremely seriously, and I look forward to working with the amazing team of educators in Abilene. The students of AISD deserve the very best education possible, and the staff deserve a leader who supports and celebrates them in their vital mission. I intend to be that person every day. I am beyond excited to get started and join the AISD team!”

“As a board, hiring a superintendent is one of our most important responsibilities,” Board President Daryl Zeller said. “We appreciate our community for sharing their voices with us throughout this process, and we are confident that Dr. Kuhn will exceed their expectations as we begin a new chapter of equipping learners for brighter futures in Abilene ISD.”

Dr. Kuhn holds a doctorate in educational leadership from Texas A&M University-Commerce, as well as master’s and bachelor’s degrees from Tarleton State University. He is married to Noelia, a diagnostician and former bilingual teacher, and they have three children.

Following a 21-day state-required waiting period, Dr. Kuhn will officially begin his role as Superintendent of Schools for Abilene ISD.
