The Wills Point ISD, represented by board of trustees president C.W. Wilson, presented Mary Ann Sanderson with a special plaque ahead of her retirement from the district. Wilson stated, “I can’t think of anybody who has been more dedicated, loyal and hard working for this school district than Mary Ann Sanderson.”

It was a bittersweet night for the Wills Point ISD on Monday with staffing matters, including the hiring of three new assistant principals and the retirement of a longtime district employee, taking center stage during the monthly board of trustees meeting.

Business opened for the district with three campus principals, Kimberly Cole-White from the primary, Kimberly Calvery from the middle school and Jeff Russell from the high school, introducing the assistant principal finalists from their respective campuses to those in attendance.

Finalists included Ashley Besco at the primary, Kimberly Fritchman at the middle school and Kelly Harle at the high school campus. Board members would welcome all three, eventually voting in favor of their hiring during an executive session at the end of the night.

During the portion of the board’s agenda dedicated to administrative reports, the board heard from Superintendent Scott Caloss on the potential establishment of an education foundation, from high school principal Jeff Russell on his desire to reimplement the district accelerated program and from board member Chuck Allen regarding unfunded state mandates.
