Following a 23-minute closed session, Plainview ISD trustees formally hired Dr. H.T. Sanchez as the district’s new superintendent.
The action, which came on a 6-0 with trustee Syliva DeLaGarza absent, follows the board’s vote 21 days earlier to name Sanchez as its lone finalist for the post vacated by Dr. Rocky Kirk who has retired. Kirk was named superintendent in 2013.
The vote prompted a standing ovation for Sanchez, who was invited to came forward and sign his contract by Board President Bryan Wood.
