About Us

Russell D. Marshall, Ed.D.

Dr. Russell Marshall, President and CEO of Arrow Educational Services, Inc., has experience in all levels of education.  He has served as a superintendent, assistant superintendent, principal, assistant principal, classroom teacher and bus driver.  He is a former associate professor of educational leadership and Coordinator of the Superintendent Certification Program for both The University of Texas at Tyler and Stephen F. Austin State University.  His current position as superintendent of Mabank ISD, an Exemplary 4-A district 45 minutes east of Dallas, keeps him current on the laws and complexities demanded of the superintendency.

Dr. Marshall has over 35 years of service to Texas school children.  He was twice named the Region 10 Superintendent of the Year, having received this honor in consecutive years.  Being a current superintendent and adjunct professor of superintendent training, he possesses the innate ability and expertise needed to recognize characteristics and chemistry vital to a successful superintendent search.

He and his wife, Tammye, have been married over 33 years.  They are the parents of four wonderful children.  Jordan Costlow is a graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University and is labor and delivery nurse at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth; Griffin is a graduate of Tarleton State University and employed in sales for Slingshot Oilfield Services of Midland, Texas; Landon is a senior finance major in the Mays business school at Texas A & M University and Alden is a freshman at the University of Texas at Austin.  

Four children (and Russell) create a huge challenge for Tammye.
