Roscoe CISD superintendent to receive Morlan award

Posted March 05, 2015

Dr. Kim Alexander, superintendent of Roscoe Collegiate Independent School District, is recipient of the 2015 Grover C. Morlan Medal.

The medal is awarded each year by the Abilene Christian University Department of Teacher Education to an alumnus who has made significant contributions to the field of education.

Under Alexander’s leadership, Roscoe administrators and teachers have transformed teaching and learning at all levels.

The Roscoe Collegiate System’s model is built on the belief that when structured correctly, all students, regardless of socio-economic, demographic, cultural or technological background, can be college and career ready upon completion of their 12th grade year, said Dr. Dana Pemberton, chair of ACU’s Teacher Education Department.

For Alexander, this is not simply a dream – he is working to make this a reality in his district. Under Alexander’s leadership, the district has restructured the traditional curriculum, redesigned instructional methods and expanded opportunities for relevant and rigorous learning, Pemberton said.

Roscoe Collegiate is a member of the Texas High Performance Schools Consortium and serves as model for other districts seeking to transform education for the 21st Century. An example of the transformational education that Roscoe Collegiate is providing can be seen in this “Stories of Impact” video.

The award will be presented at the 2015 Morlan Award Dinner at 6:30 p.m. March 19 in the Hunter Welcome Center. Tickets are $20 per person and can be purchased by emailing Cathy Ford at or calling (325) 674-2112.
