At a special meeting on Aug. 3, the Dripping Springs ISD Board of Trustees unanimously approved Superintendent Todd Washburn’s recommendation of Cedric Menchion as the district’s new Chief Financial Officer.
Menchion has been the controller at Killeen ISD since 2014 and has more than 20 years of experience in financial and investment-related positions. At Killeen, he is responsible for the Payroll, Treasury and Accounts Payable departments. Menchion’s first position in the public school environment was at Austin ISD, where he spent two years as the district’s treasurer.
“With eight years of experience in public schools and more than 20 years overall in the financial field, Cedric Menchion brings well-rounded experience to the position,” said Washburn. “He is a life-long learner who has shown commitment to helping his staff grow and develop professionally, and we are pleased to welcome him to our DSISD team.”
In his position at Dripping Springs ISD, Menchion will direct and monitor the management and investment of all district funds as the chief financial and budget advisor to the Superintendent and Board of Trustees.
Before working at Austin ISD, Menchion was an investment officer for the City of San Antonio and for an agency of the U.S. Air Force. He spent the first 10 years of his career as a financial accountant for a private firm.
Menchion’s certifications include Certified Treasury Professional (CTP) and Registered Texas School Business Administrator (RTSBA). He earned his bachelor’s degree in Management and Economics from Bellevue University (Nebraska) and his MBA in Accounting and Economics from West Texas A&M University.
Menchion is expected to begin his new role in DSISD Sept. 1, 2020.
