Dr. Eric Wright (center) is joined by Hays CISD board trustees after signing his contract Dec. 7. Neither rain, sleet or even snow kept Hays CISD trustees from naming Dr. Eric Wright as the new superintendent in a special called meeting. Tim Savoy, Hays CISD public information officer, said Wright’s contract is worth $240,000 and spans three years. Wright was named the lone finalist for the position in November amid a field of 34 applicants. Wright previously worked as the superintendent at Fredricksburg ISD.
