Following a search to replace retiring superintendent Dr. Marc Williamson, the Fredericksburg Independent School District board of trustees has named as the finalist a man who describes himself as a “servant leader.”
Dr. Eric Wright, who has served as the superintendent of Huntington ISD in the Texas Timber Country since 2006, has been chosen as the lone finalist for the Fredericksburg job.
At one time, more than 60 candidates had applied for the FISD position to replace Williamson, who had served since 1998.
“I think of myself as very student and employee oriented,” Wright said. “It’s important to bring out the positive attributes in students and employees and put them into positions to be successful.”
Prior to his position with Huntington, a Class 3A school of 1,800 students, Wright also had spent two years as superintendent of Woodville ISD.
