School Board Approves New Hilltop Elementary Principal

The Argyle ISD Board of Trustees approved Dona Lumsden as the new Hilltop Elementary School Principal during Monday's Special Board Meeting.

Lumsden joined Argyle ISD in 2018 and served the past two years as an Argyle Middle School Assistant Principal. She has more than 15 years of experience in public education and five as a school administrator.

Before joining Argyle ISD, Lumsden served in Lake Dallas ISD from 2004-2018 and was promoted to Lake Dallas High School Assistant Principal in 2015 and held this position for three years. During her career, Lumsden has served as a math teacher and math department head at the middle and high school levels, academic advisor and lead counseling department advisor. She was named the Lake Dallas ISD Secondary Teacher of the Year in 2009-2010.

"I am very grateful for the opportunity to join the team at Hilltop Elementary, and I thank the district leadership and School Board for their confidence and trust in me," Lumsden said. "It is so exciting to begin this new journey and my commitment to the staff, students and parents of Hilltop will be to work tirelessly to deliver excellence in everything we do."

Lumsden was named an Assistant Principal at Argyle High School earlier this summer and will now shift into her new role leading Hilltop Elementary as the district prepares for the first day of school on Monday, Aug. 17. Hilltop Elementary serves grades Pre-K through 3rd grade.

"Mrs. Lumsden is an excellent administrator and we are very excited to have her leading the Hilltop Elementary campus," Argyle ISD Superintendent Dr. Telena Wright said. "She has been a valuable member of our leadership team since she arrived in Argyle and we look forward to continued success for our students and staff at Hilltop." 

Lumsden has a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics and a Master of Education Administration from Texas Woman's University.
