About Renae Hickert

Welcome to my page!  

A little bit of information about me.......

  • I am a native southwestern Kansan and grew up in Moscow, Kansas.

​My Education

  • 1982 graduate of Seward County Community College
  • 1984 graduate of Panhandle State University in Goodwell, Oklahoma
  • earned a masters degree from Fort Hays State University in 1996

My Experience

  • 1985-2003 elementary classroom teacher

​I began my teaching career in a small northwest Kansas town, Herndon.  In 1990, I returned to southwest Kansas and taught in the Stanton County School system for thirteen years.

  • 2003-2007 principal

​I was middle school principal for one year at Stanton County and then I had the opportunity to be an alternative high school principal in Elkhart, Kansas for three years.

  • 2007-present district leadership

​For five years, I was superintendent of the Hope and White City schools.  In 2012, I returned to southwest Kansas to work in U.S.D. 480 as the assistant superintendent and then deputy superintendent.  Now I am extremely proud to be the superintendent for the Liberal school system!

My Life

  • ​I  have been married for several years to a great guy and have two wonderful children.
  • Three spoiled but awesome dogs--Cocoa, Sadie and Keela--rule the Hickert roost.
  • I love to read actual books--not books on a Kindle or a Nook.
  • Diet Dr. Pepper rocks!  A great steak once in a while never hurts either!
  • John Wayne movies and MASH reruns are my idea of fun!  An occasional trip to Colorado is a close second.
  • I  love living and working in Liberal.
