The New Braunfels ISD board of trustees will welcome a new member and a new superintendent beginning in June.

During the board’s regular May 10 meeting, the board approved the appointment of Dr. Cade Smith as the new superintendent for the district.

Smith has served as the superintendent for Brock ISD in the Dallas-Fort Worth area since 2018. He previously worked as the executive director of campus operations and campus leadership in Georgetown ISD from 2016-18, was principal at Georgetown High School from 2013-16 and was an assistant principal in Frisco ISD from 2009-13. He began his teaching career in 1999.

Smith will begin his position with NBISD in June.

The board also swore in Eric Bergquist and Steve Minus to take board seats in districts 3 and 5, respectively.

Both won their respective races during the May 1 election. Bergquist will begin his second term while Minus will take the seat previously held by board president Sherry Harrison. Harrison did not run for re-election.
