Today, the Carroll Independent School District named Ryan Wilson as the new Carroll Senior High School Principal effective immediately. Prior to this appointment, Wilson served as Dawson Middle School principal and has served in this role for the past 13 years. Wilson is known for his passion for students and fostering a caring and supportive learning environment.
“We are excited Ryan Wilson will serve as our Carroll Senior High School principal. He is a respected school leader who knows our Dragons, our parents and our community,” Dr. Lane Ledbetter, Superintendent of Schools, said. “Based on the feedback from staff and parents about the top traits and characteristics they seek in the next Carroll Senior High School principal, Mr. Wilson exemplified each one.”
As an educator, Wilson has a total of 22 years of educational experience with three years at Dawson Middle School as a teacher, three years as Assistant Principal and then 13 years as principal. He has been with Carroll ISD for 19 years of his 22-year career. Wilson started his career as a middle school teacher in Lewisville ISD.
“I am both humbled and honored to be appointed as the next principal at Carroll Senior High School. My 19 years in the district has instilled in me a tremendous desire to care for each and every Dragon student who walks our CISD hallways,” Ryan Wilson, said. “It’s an exciting opportunity for me to be in service to the staff and students as they finish their public school journey.”
Wilson added, “I believe it is my responsibility to continue to build a supportive and collaborative spirit where every Dragon feels they are a part of our time-honored traditions we cherish in our school and community. When we feel we are a part of a whole, we recognize that we are all better together.”
Moving forward, CISD will post the Dawson Middle School position as soon as possible. Parents and staff will receive an input opportunity to provide what types of leadership traits and characteristics they would like in the next Dawson Middle School principal. The district hopes to interview and name the Dawson Middle School principal by August 2, 2021 Board of Trustees Special Meeting.
