The Bastrop school district hired June Crawford to serve as its finance director six months after Theresa Fierro retired in December. Crawford began her new position July 12.
“I am excited to join the Bastrop ISD family,” Crawford said in a statement. “I look forward to working with such an outstanding team and getting to know the wonderful people of Bastrop.”
Crawford, who has dual degrees in accounting and management from the University of Texas at Arlington, previously worked as the Copperas Cove school district’s chief financial officer. In that position, which she began in 2016, she oversaw and managed the district’s budget, state and federal grants, financial reporting, purchasing, payroll and other duties.
She has nearly 20 years of school finance experience, the Bastrop district said. Before working for the Copperas Cove district, Crawford served five years as assistant business manager for the Waller school district. She also has worked as a business manager for Paint Rock school district and served as an accountant for both Crowley and Waxahachie school districts.
“We are excited for June (Crawford) to join our team in the business office,” said Dina Edgar, Bastrop district chief financial officer. “Her experience and knowledge in the field will be a tremendous asset to the district.”
Fourteen candidates applied for the vacant finance director position and the district interview three people for the job, communications director Kristi Lee said. Crawford will earn a $94,958 salary.
