After a unanimous 6-0 vote, the CISD Board of Trustees named Steve Kealser the new CISD Executive Director of Athletics on Monday. 

Keasler is no stranger to Southlake. From 1994 to 2004, he served as Dragon head golf coach and teacher at Carroll high schools. He has worked in education for almost 30 years, including work in Grand Prairie ISD, Callisburg ISD and most recently Midlothian ISD, where he served as athletic director for the past 10 years. 

With an extensive resume as a golf coach, Kealser left CISD in 2004 to become assistant men's golf coach at the University of Texas at Austin. Athletic teams under his umbrella are no strangers to success: at Midlothian, the boys basketball team made state and both girls and boys soccer teams made the Class 5A Region II tournament.
