The Wentzville School District has hired Derrick Docket to be its director of marketing – a new position created as part of a strategic plan to open advertising opportunities within the district.
“This is something we have been looking at doing for some time,” Superintendent Dr. Curtis Cain said. “In the past, there has been a hesitation to allow advertising in our schools, but we believe that the time is right to partner with our local businesses who want to support our students and invest in our success as a growing and well-respected district. As the fastest growing school district in the state, we owe it to our taxpayers to examine alternative funding sources.”
Docket currently serves as the associate commissioner of new media and technology for the Missouri Valley Conference, where he has worked for the past seven years. He holds a bachelor’s degree in graphic design/digital imaging with a minor in advertising and promotion from Missouri State University.
“I am very excited about the opportunity to develop a marketing and advertising plan for the Wentzville School District,” said Docket. “I can already see the pride that the community has in the district and I look forward to working with everyone and developing lasting partnerships.”
