WISD Announces Pair of District Administrators

The Weatherford ISD School Board approved the hiring of Ron Holmgreen and Dr. Jason Dunkelberger at its meeting on Monday night. Holmgreen, currently the Superintendent of Brock ISD, will serve as WISD’s Executive Director of Student Services. Dunkelberger will serve as WISD’s Director of Transportation after most recently holding the same role in Lake Worth ISD.
 

Holmgreen joins WISD with 27 years of experience in education, including serving as the Superintendent of Brock ISD for the last year. Prior to that role, he worked as assistant superintendent in Granbury ISD since 2015. 
 
“I am very pleased that Ron Holmgreen will be joining the Roo Nation,” said WISD Superintendent Dr. Beau Rees. “Ron brings with him extensive experience in classroom, campus leadership and district leadership roles. He has a passion for serving students that I’m certain will make a difference in the Weatherford community.” 
 
Having begun his educational career in 1996, Holmgreen started as a teen leadership teacher and coach at Duncanville Ninth Grade Center. He later taught social studies and government and coached in Leander ISD for eight years before moving into a campus leadership position as lead assistant principal at Vista Ridge High School in 2008. 
 
He served in that role until 2013 when he joined Granbury as principal of the Crossland Ninth Grade Center, a position he held until his 2015 move into district administration.
 
Holmgreen earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Stephen F. Austin State University and a master’s degree in educational administration from Lamar University. 
 
Ron and his wife, Andee, have three children. He has been active in his community as a volunteer with several organizations, including the United Way of Hood County and Mission Granbury.
 

Dunkelberger, a U.S. Army veteran, joins WISD with nearly 10 years of experience in education following a 21-year military career. He has most recently served as the Director of Transportation and Safety in Lake Worth ISD.
 
“Throughout WISD, the safety of our students is our top priority, and in the role of our Director of Transportation that is certainly at the forefront,” said WISD Superintendent Dr. Beau Rees. “Jason brings a unique perspective to our district with his mind for safety and his experience in the classroom. ”
 
Dunkelberger began his educational career as a Senior Army Instructor and JROTC leader at Albert Gallatin High School in Uniontown, Pennsylvania, in 2013. Dunkelberger then moved to Texas to serve in the same role at Benbrook Middle-High School where he remained until 2018.
 
He then moved into campus leadership, serving as the dean/assistant principal at the Bill R. Johnson CTE Center in Crowley ISD in 2018. Dunkelberger then served as assistant principal at Keller ISD campuses Chisholm Trail Intermediate School in 2019 and Fossil Hill Middle School in 2020. He moved into his role in Lake Worth ISD in 2021.
 
Dunkelberger earned his bachelor’s degree in information systems from Robert Morris University, his master’s degree in business and marketing from University of the Southwest and his doctoral degree in educational leadership from Liberty University. 
 
He and his wife, Lisa, have four children.
