After a superintendent search that saw more than 60 candidates apply, Fredericksburg Independent School District has named Huntington ISD superintendent Dr. Eric Wright as its sole finalist for the job.
Wright would replace Dr. Marc Williamson, who is retiring after the fall semester following 15 years as FISD’s superintendent.
The board voted on Wright as the final candidate at a Wednesday, Dec. 11 special meeting. They must now wait 21 days for public response. According to board president Lorrie Hess, they will vote Monday, Jan. 6 on whether to hire Wright.
“At this point, the board is unanimously in support of Wright as a candidate,” Hess said. “He is a good choice who was beyond our expectations.”
Since 2006, Wright has served as superintendent of Huntington, a Class 3A school of 1,800 students. Prior to that, he spent two years as superintendent of Woodville ISD, a 2A school of 1,350 students.
