Shelton will take the place of Randy Weisinger, who is retiring in December to spend more time with his wife, daughters and grandson
Brad Shelton has been named the new athletic director at Midway ISD by Superintendent Dr. George Kazanas.
Shelton has been at Midway ISD since 2006, first serving as UIL Athletic Compliance Coordinator/Head Athletic Trainer, and most recently as the Success Lab Administrator for the district’s Alternative Education Program. As Head Trainer, Shelton assisted the Athletic Director with all UIL compliance, extracurricular discipline management plans, safety and emergency planning, and professional development of the coaching staff.
Superintendent Dr. George Kazanas said, “Mr. Shelton is a problem solver, a critical thinker, a relationship-builder, and a strong student advocate. His experiences in several athletic programs across the state (including Midway) over the course of his career, plus his outstanding work in the district’s DAEP/Excel program, set him apart from the other candidates. He is enthusiastic, articulate, and intelligent.”
Shelton earned his Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in 2002, his teacher certification from Texas State University in 2005, and his Master’s in Education from Lamar University in 2009.
Shelton will take the place of Randy Weisinger, who is retiring in December to spend more time with his wife, daughters and grandson. Weisinger will help Shelton with the transition to the new position throughout the fall sports seasons.
Weisinger shepherded Midway High School from 4A to 6A during his tenure since 2008. The tremendous district growth during that time led to $20 million in athletic facilities construction and renovations, including Panther Stadium’s renovation, Midway Activity Center construction, and improvements to lighting, sound, and scoreboards across the middle school and high school campuses.
During Weisinger’s time as athletic director, Midway High School had state championship and playoff appearances across almost every sports program, resulting in 4A state champions for Midway in softball, girls’ basketball, tennis, track and field, and swimming and diving.
