LOVELADY – The Lovelady ISD Board of Trustees has named a lone finalist for the district’s superintendent position.

During a called meeting held on Thursday, June 22, current Crockett ISD Assistant Superintendent Wendy Tullos was named as the lone finalist for the LISD position.

The vacancy in Lovelady was created when Dr. Micah Dyer resigned at the end of May to take a similar position with Cuero ISD. The LISD board appointed former Lovelady superintendent Johns Reynolds to fill the district’s top spot on an interim basis until they could find a permanent replacement for Dyer.

Tullos has served in her current position with Crockett ISD since 2014. She now enters a state mandated 21-day waiting period before the school board can vote to extend and execute a contract offer. Tullos is currently on vacation and unavailable for comment.

Crockett ISD Superintendent Terry Myers commented on Tullos’ selection, following a CISD Board of Trustees meeting held on Monday, June 26.

“Obviously, I am very disappointed for Crockett ISD. She is an integral part of what we do around here and my right hand. Having said that, I am very, very pleased for her,” Myers said.

“She is certainly a qualified individual and will do a good job as a superintendent, given that opportunity,” he said. “Again, I am disappointed that Crockett ISD is losing such a great lady. She is a very big part of what we do here. She will be hard to replace.”
