PLAINVIEW, TX (KCBD) -

The Plainview ISD Board of Trustees has picked the man they want leading the district after current Superintendent Rocky Kirk retires later this year.

On Wednesday, the board selected Dr. H. T. Sanchez as the lone finalist for the upcoming vacancy.

Sanchez is the former superintendent for the Tucson Unified School District, serving there from 2013 until last February.

He also served as Deputy Superintendent and Interim Superintendent for Ector County ISD in Odessa from 2010 until leaving for Arizona.

Sanchez holds an educational doctorate (Ed.D) from Texas A&M Commerce, receiving his hood in 2006. He also holds a Master of Education from Sul Ross State University and a Bachelor of Arts in English from Angelo State University. Sanchez started his education career in the spring of 1999 as an English teacher at Nimitz Junior High School in Odessa.

Dr. Kirk, Plainview’s Superintendent since 2013, announced last December he planned to retire at the end of his contract, set to expire at the end of this year. He agreed to allow the board to select his replacement before his contract was up.

Now that Sanchez has been named the lone finalist, the school district must wait 21 days before it can offer him a contract, a state law.

That would put his first possible day at May 2. A school board election is set for Plainview ISD on May 5.
