After hunting much of the summer for a head high school girls’ basketball coach, on Tuesday evening Mineral Wells ISD trustees approved hiring Leslie Holman to fill the position.
“She was our first choice, but she didn’t apply because of family reasons,” said MWISD Superintendent Gail Haterius, adding, “But she came around.”
This will be Holman’s fifth year at MWISD, according to Haterius, but she has 24 total years in education and is certified in English, Physical Education and Biology. Last year Holman coached junior varsity girls’ basketball and volleyball at Mineral Wells High School.
Haterius said Holman will “grow our program where we want it to be.”
