Nacogdoches High School is losing its popular principal. Dennis Williams, a man whose motto is, ' firm, fair and friendly ' has announced his resignation. As soon as he can he'll be leaving Nacogdoches for an assistant superintendent's job in the Kilgore Independent School District. Williams said, " Probably about 3 or 4 weeks ago that the situation arose and it was back in my hometown of Kilgore. I got some phone calls to see if I was interested in it. I pondered and thought, discussed it with my family, did a lot of praying about it and didn't know exactly how it would turn out. "
In 2004, Williams quickly gained the respect of teachers, staff, students and parents as McMichael Middle School principal. The next school year he was transferred to the high school.
