From Staff Reports

Two incumbents signed up today for re-election to the Sulphur Springs Independent School District board of trustees.

Both Foy Williams and Carolyn Malone Thomas, who were elected to the school board three years ago, filed candidacy papers for the upcoming SSISD election, scheduled for May 12.

Sulphur Springs attorney Clay Johnson also filed for one of the three seats on the school board earlier this week.

The other seat is currently held by Norman Sanders Jr., who is completing his second three-year term on the board.

Both Thomas and Williams have extensive education credentials.

Thomas holds a bachelor of arts degree in education from Tarkio College in Missouri, a master's degree in Christian education from Calvary Bible College in Kansas City, and a master's of social work degree in social service administration from the University of Chicago. She was also a high school classroom teacher for nine years, worked in the 100th U.S. Congress for U.S. Senator Christopher Bond as a legislative aid on education, labor, health and human services and veteran issues, and was operations manager for the National Rainbow Coalition Office of Jesse Jackson Sr.

Williams retired after 30 years of work as a teacher, coach and administator. He was assistant principal at McKinney High School and Sulphur Springs High School for four years, and principal of Sulphur Springs Middle School for nine years.

The three seats are for three years each, with the spots awarded to the three candidates receiving the most votes at the conclusion of the May 12 election.

Candidate filing will be conducted weekdays through March 12 in the tax office at SSISD Administration Building, 631 Connally St. Hours are  Monday-Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., and on Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Those applying should see election official Judy Gregg in the tax office to pick up packets to register.
