Mexia ISD trustees announced their lone finalist to become the district’s next superintendent after a brief closed-door meeting Monday night.
After their 20-minute executive session, the board re-convened in open session and voted unanimously with all present to name Jefferson ISD Superintendent Dr. Sharon Ross as their sole candidate for the position.
She has been superintendent at Jefferson ISD for the last five years, and prior to that was assistant superintendent of curriculum at Crockett ISD for just under two years. Ross earned her superintendent certification from The University of Texas at Permian Basin after receiving her doctorate in education from Stephen F. Austin State University.
Ross said she feels the job here is “my assignment from God,” citing the district’s demographics and the desire to “move people from the bottom to the top.”
In a handout Ross presented to those attending Monday’s meeting, she said she’s determined to bring a “culture of greatness” to the district.
