Bays is ‘super’ finalist
Dr. Sherri Bays
FLORESVILLE -- She has served for four years as an assistant superintendent in the Floresville Independent School District. Now, the district’s board of trustees has chosen Dr. Sherri Bays for the district’s top administrative post.
The board, after spending more than four hours conducting interviews during a closed session at its March 6 special meeting, chose Bays from among three finalists.
Bays said afterwards in a press release, “I look forward to continuing to work with the fantastic staff, students, parents, and community of Floresville, as we partner together to prepare our students for a prosperous life. I would like to thank the board of trustees for entrusting me with this opportunity to lead.”
Having spent 18 years of her 22-year teaching career in Floresville, Bays is no stranger to the district. According to her resume, Bays was hired to teach at Floresville Middle School in 1991, where she remained for seven years. Then from 1998-2000, she was an administrator in Kenedy, before returning to Floresville in 2001 as principal of the Floresville Middle School.
Five years later, she was hired to a similar position at Floresville High School, until being promoted to assistant superintendent in 2009. Then in July 2013, following the departure of former Superintendent Jerry Lee Hunkapiller, Bays was appointed as the district’s interim superintendent.
According to Texas’ State Board for Educator Certification, Bays has been certified to teach since 1991. She has been certified as an early childhood through 12th-grade superintendent since 2007.
A married mother of two, Bays lives in Floresville. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Southwest Texas State University and a master’s degree from Texas A&M University-Kingsville. Her doctorate degree in Educational Leadership was obtained in December 2013 from Lamar University.
