MPISD announces administrative changes
Two MPISD campuses will have new leadership for the spring semester as MPISD announces campus administrative changes.
Carrie McMinn has assumed the role of Principal of Vivian Fowler Elementary School. McMinn graduated from Texas Tech University and earned a master’s degree from Stephen F. Austin State University. She began her education career as a 1st-grade teacher in Harts Bluff ISD and then spent the next nine years teaching kindergarten at Annie Sims Elementary. She was the LPAC/Testing Coordinator at Sims for four years and has served the last two and a half as the Annie Sims Assistant Principal.
“I am looking forward to shaping the vision and facilitating the success of all students and staff at Vivian Fowler,” said McMinn. “I am excited about building new relationships with students, parents, and staff and helping promote a safe and fun learning environment where students thrive.”
At Annie Sims Elementary, they named Lexi Litke the Assistant Principal to replace McMinn. Litke graduated from Midwestern State University. She previously taught in Wichita Falls at Zundy Leadership Academy, Barwise Leadership Academy, and Whiteside Elementary in Lubbock. Litke brings a wide range of experience, having taught 6-8th grade math, self-contained special education, and K-5 reading and math special education. She has also served in administrative roles as the testing coordinator at Whiteside and Annie Sims Elementary.
Litke said, “Mount Pleasant and Annie Sims have both felt like home since we arrived, and I can’t wait to continue growing relationships with staff, students, and families in this new role.”
