After a national exhaustive Superintendent search process conducted by O’Hanlon Demerath & Castillo which attracted over 35 applicants from across the country, the Kingsville Board of Trustees are proud to announce that Dr. Cecilia “Cissy” Reynolds-Perez has been named the Lone Finalist for the position of Superintendent of Schools.
A proud Kingsville ISD graduate, Dr. Reynolds-Perez has served as principal at all grade levels and is currently serving as the Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction and Human Resources at West Oso ISD, in Corpus Christi. The Kingsville ISD board selected Dr. Reynolds-Perez as their Lone Finalist because of her knowledge of current technological trends, HB3 TEA accountability requirements, and their confidence that she would gain the trust of the community by meeting the academic, athletic, fine arts, college readiness, STEM, career and technical and social emotional needs of the Kingsville Brahmas.
Some of Dr. Reynolds-Perez’ personal accomplishments include Texas High School Principal of the Year by the Texas Association of Secondary School Principals, as well as HEB Excellence in Education Elementary Principal of the Year. Dr. Reynolds-Perez was also appointed by Governor Abbott to serve on the Governor’s State Board for the Texas School Safety Center, and she currently serves as Co-Chair on State Representative Todd Hunter’s Suicide Prevention Task Force.
The words, “Once a Brahma, Always a Brahma” are not just words to me. They helped mold me into the dedicated educator I am today and have been for many years.
“As Board President, I look forward to working closely with Dr. Reynolds-Perez to move this District forward during these trying times and to provide the highest quality education possible for the students of this community.”
—Brandon Greenwood, Board President
