Mr. Waldrip and the district must wait the mandatory 21 days before he can sign the contract and take the reins of the district.
He comes to the district with a career as a successful teacher, coach, assistant principal, principal and superintendent.
We welcome Mr. Waldrip to Abernathy from Wellman-Union ISD where he served as superintendent for three years. Prior to that, he graduated from Texas Tech with a major in exercise and sports science and minor in education and Spanish. He spent his first four years teaching and coaching at Estacado and Lubbock High. He transitioned into administration as an assistant principal and ultimately the role of principal at Brownfield Middle School where he served a total of five years.
He and his wife, Ashley Waldrip, have three children: Elli Kate, Maddox Jack and Myla Mae who will be joining them in Abernathy. We are happy to have Mr. Waldrip and his family in the district! As always, it's a great day to be an Abernathy Antelope!
