With less than 6 weeks left until the THS class of 2022 graduates, we thought it would be fun to share pictures of some of our TISD staff members their senior year. It has been so fun watching the kids try to figure out who is who. It’s even more fun to hear comments like, “You were pretty back then” and “You had more hair back then”. 😂😂 Parents, soak up these last weeks. They go by fast!

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

The M Club fundraiser in Tarkington this weekend was AMAZING! Funds raised will help EVERY senior with college/career plans after graduation. The love in the arena for the students was inspiring. The generosity of our community took my breath away. Tarkington ISD not only has great friends in our board members, but also has friends in life-long residents devoted to our success. I learned from a board member in Grand Prairie that the way you spell LOVE is T-I-M-E. There was so much love in the arena as you gave your time, talents, and resources for our students! In action, I saw Longhorns for Life! Dr. Elna Davis Superintendent

I believe the strength of unity is as close as we can get to a superpower. I can’t wait to meet the wonderful students, dedicated staff, caring parents, and the courageous community of Tarkington. Together, we are going to continue to build, learn, and grow on all the successes already celebrated. I am humbled to be selected to serve in this capacity, and I look forward to celebrating many more wins together.
