Northwest ISD is pleased to announce the promotion of Jerry Cantu as the school district’s new director of communications and community relations.

Mr. Cantu has served in Northwest ISD since 2015 as a communications and community engagement coordinator. In that role, he revamped the district’s Partners in Education program by creating additional volunteer and mentorship opportunities for community members, and he began and implemented the district’s first comprehensive marketing and advertising program.

Prior to his career in Northwest ISD, Mr. Cantu worked in Mansfield ISD, first as a broadcast journalism instructor and later as the communications multimedia specialist.

“I am honored to serve NISD in this role,” Mr. Cantu said. “Working for one of the fastest-growing districts in the state will provide unique opportunities for improving our methods of communication with our stakeholders. I look forward to creating and fostering mutually rewarding relationships with our community and business partners who support our students and staff.”

He also serves as a sports broadcasting consultant for the University of Texas at Arlington’s athletic program.
