Longview ISD hires new assistant superintendent

Horace Williams Horace Williams

From Longview Independent School District:

LONGVIEW, ISD - A former Texas and New York superintendent returned home to east Texas this week to begin his new job of improving academic performance in Longview ISD.

Horace Williams, a Leverett’s Chapel native, began his job as an assistant superintendent on Monday. He most recently served for 6½ years as superintendent of Cedar Hill ISD, where the district improved from Academically Acceptable to Recognized by the Texas Education Agency.

“Horace has a long history of implementing positive academic change and we couldn’t be more pleased to have him working for the children of Longview ISD,” Superintendent Dr. James E. Wilcox said.

Prior to Williams’ work in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, he was superintendent of schools in Diboll ISD and on Long Island, NY, where he headed the first state takeover of an underperforming school district there. During his four years at the helm in New York, Williams oversaw the passage of a $207 million school construction bond.

Williams will be paid $120,000 annually.
