Socorro ISD names superintendent finalist
EL PASO -- Socorro Independent School District named a sole finalist in their search for a superintendent in a special meeting Saturday morning.
The board of trustees unanimously named Dr. Joe Espinoza, an area superintendent from Houston, as the next leader of the district.
"He is an excellent educator and demonstrates a high standard of leadership that will take Socorro ISD to the next level of student achievement," said Board President Michael Najera.
Espinoza has 16 years of experience working as a teacher, counselor, assistant principal, principal and district administrator.
No date has been set for the start of employment due to a 21-day state mandated waiting period before Espinoza can be given a contract.
