Dylan Highfill

Hi! My name is Dylan Highfill and I am the CIS Program Manager at Kennedale High School. I am a licensed social worker and received my degree from UTA. My favorite thing about working with students is I love being part of a school family and being a part of their story!  I am most looking forward to getting to know my students and being a part of everything on campus this school year.  I have two boys, Kade (13) and Cooper (6), and my favorite snack is Pickles and Pretzels! I can’t wait to meet you and your family!
