SSISD names Prickette to vacant board seat


SULPHUR SPRINGS - The Sulphur Springs School Board Monday afternoon unanimously approved the appointment of John Prickette to fill the seat recently vacated by Foy Williams.

Williams resigned from his position January 1 due to health reasons. SSISD had postponed filling the seat in order to begin the search for a new superintendent.

According to a press release by the district, Prickette is employed by Grocery Supply Company and previously served as the Economic Development Corporation Executive Vice President in Sulphur Springs.  He served as co-chair of the Citizens Committee in support of the bond proposal that was approved by voters in 2009.  He has also been instrumental in developing the SOCKS (Support Our Campuses & Kids) adopt-a-school program.

“We are very excited to welcome John on the SSISD Board of Trustees.  John is a strong and positive supporter of our schools and as a board we look forward to his contribution to helping lead our district in educating our children!” said Jason Dietze, Board President.
