There have been plenty of moving parts for district athletic departments to deal with during the coronavirus pandemic.
Fort Bend ISD has had one extra layer of complexity after athletic director Rodney Chant left for San Angelo ISD in May.
But FBISD didn’t look far to fill the open AD position.
Assistant athletic director Dena Scott was promoted to oversee FBISD’s sports-related extracurricular activities.
The news of Scott’s promotion was broken by the Dulles High School football team’s Twitter account.
Dulles is Scott’s old stomping grounds, where she served as the Lady Vikings’ head volleyball coach. She was a member of the Dulles volleyball team before playing collegiately at Syracuse University.
Scott has been with FBISD for nearly 20 years, starting at the middle school level, where she was a physical education/health teacher.
She served as a girls athletic coordinator before moving up to the high school level.
When Scott became the Lady Vikings varsity volleyball coach, she was also the PE department head and campus coordinator for all the Lady Viking teams.
Scott takes over an athletic department with 11 high schools spread across two classifications.
Fort Bend ISD announced on Monday that its plan to start the 2020-21 school year without extracurricular activities while the school is focused online learning.
