BURNET — Quest High School has a new principal: Dr. Douglas Marvin.

The Burnet Consolidated Independent School District board of trustees approved the hire during a special meeting Dec. 2.

He will officially begin in January, said Contessa Huffman, the director of Human Resources Administrative Services.

“Mr. Marvin is excited about the opportunity to work for BCISD and move his family to our community,” she said.

Marvin began his career at the Bryan Independent School District teaching physics and chemistry and coaching for five years.

He moved to the Sheldon Independent School District in 2005. He was the curriculum specialist for science for grades kindergarten through 12th grade for four years, then became the principal of the Opportunity Academy, an alternative program and Disciplined Alternative Education Program, for two years.

When the academy was absorbed back into the high school because of budget cuts, Marvin spent a year as the assistant principal of C.E. King Middle School, then took over as the assistant principal at the Stephanie Cravens Early Childhood Academy.
