Proud Senior, Brylee Holmes, one of many 2022 seniors, was the first student who introduced herself to me when I arrived at the high school for a tour on Friday AND made a point to find me and introduce herself to me again at the fundraiser on Saturday! She exudes a positive spirit and has served as homecoming queen. I'm sure she is one of many leaders in TISD, and I can't wait to meet you all. Dr. Elna Davis Superintendent
