I am excited to be here as the new superintendent of USD210 schools! Prior to coming
to Hugoton, I had 12 years in education. I spent the first 8 years of my career teaching in the Newton school district in Newton, KS. I am
an elementary guy by trade. I taught 3rd grade for 3 years, 4th grade for 4 years, and was an instructional coach for a year. I then moved into an elementary principal position in Kingman, KS. I have been a high school softball coach, and a college basketball coach. Along the way, I have learned a little bit in each position that has helped prepare me more my new role as Superintendent of Schools
My wife, Kristen and I have two daughters that either keep us young or make us grow old fast. I am not always sure which. Kristen is a 3rd grade teacher here at HES.
When I get free time, I love to hunt, play golf, and do woodworking. Although if you ask my wife, I am not the fastest when it comes to finishing house projects. I am a die hard Kansas Jayhawks fan and bleed royal blue for the Kansas City Royals.
I look forward to getting invested in our new community. I want to spend a lot of time listening to parents, staff, and community in order to identify what makes our schools great. I also want to learn the areas we can grow.
Mr. Adrian Howie
Superintendent of Schools - USD210
