Hays CISD leaders Monday officially named the district’s third campus after one of its founding members. By a 7-0 vote, the Hays CISD board of trustees named High School 3 (HS3) as William Moe and Gene Johnson High. Moe Johnson was an integral cog in the consolidation of Hays CISD in 1968 and was the district’s superintendent for many years. Additionally, Hays CISD leaders added Gene Johnson, Moe’s wife, to the name of the building based on her contributions to the district and the life of Moe. Mascot and school colors for MoeJo High will be determined in spring 2018. District officials anticipate the rezoning process for Johnson High to take place in fall 2018.
