Changes were afoot for Hays CISD in 2015 as the district made several new hires and promoted some staff members last spring. One of the major hires was made in December 2014 when the district brought in Lucio Calzada as the Assistant Superintendent of Schools to replace outgoing staff member Elsa Hinojosa. In addition, the district shifted Tim Persall, who was promoted to assistant superintendent of schools. Longtime Hays CISD staff member Carter Scherff, who is currently the district’s Deputy Superintendent, took on the duties of R.C. Herrin, who was Executive Director of Maintaince and Operations.
