School Superintendent Kelly Baggett was honored Friday with the Friends of Scouting Distinguished Citizen award.

Baggett, who has served 44 years in public education, has dedicated his life to helping students achieve their best, said Mark Holcomb, retired Levelland ISD superintendent.

‘He is not only a voice for the district but an ear for community concerns,’ Holcomb said at the Scouting luncheon at South Plains College.

Baggett has been a teacher, a coach, assistant principal, principal and superintendent. He also taught students driver’s education earlier in his career.

Education and bringing out the best in people has been a focus of Baggett and his family, Holcomb said.

His wife, Nancy, is a retired teacher and all three of their children are educators.

‘His impact on our youth is worthy of recognition,’ Holcomb said.
