June 15, 2015 - Tenaha ISD Superintendent, Scott Tyner, is proud to announce that the Board of Trustees has unanimously approved the hiring of two new members to the Tiger leadership team. The Board and TISD administration have worked tirelessly over the last month to fill vacancies in the areas of Elementary Principal and Athletic Director.
Linda Jacobs will join the TISD administrative team as the new PK-5 principal. Ms. Jacobs comes to Tenaha from San Augustine ISD where she served as Elementary principal. In all, Ms. Jacobs has 13 years of experience as a campus principal at the elementary grade levels. Other administrative stops for Ms. Jacobs include Joaquin and Broaduss.
Craig Horn has also been hired to replace the departing Terry Ward as the new Athletic Director and Head Football Coach at TISD. Tiger fans will be familiar with Coach Horn’s Hubbard teams of the last four years that Tenaha twice defeated in the playoffs en route to the Region III title. Coach Horn brings with him a 76% winning percentage as a head coach over eight seasons as well as a renowned reputation for quickly building winning programs. Coach Horn and his wife Alicia also bring with them six children ranging from the 10th grade down into the elementary grades. After a statewide search, the Board of Trustees selected Coach Horn on a unanimous vote.
TISD Superintendent Scott Tyner added these remarks. “In the school business climate of today, change is going to happen. We have been very lucky over the larger part of ten years not to feel a great deal of change, but this isn’t the first time it has happened. In fact, this change cycle is the third such cycle in my ten years on staff here at TISD. I am extremely excited to have Ms. Jacobs on our team. She brings a passion to the role of elementary principal that we have quite frankly lacked. I foresee nothing but amazing things ahead for the students under her watch. Coach Horn is certainly an accomplished football coach. Our experience coaching against him a couple of times has taught us that. I have no doubt that his approach and style is what is needed to keep us on that championship level we expect to be.”
