Trustees set three-year contract with $152K salary
It took Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District trustees seven minutes in closed session to decide that lone finalist Hal Harrell is the best pick to lead UCISD students, faculty and staff.
Trustees voted Friday evening to initiate a three-year contract, with a salary of $152,100. The contract became effective the same day, Nov. 16. It was the final step in the decision trustees made Oct. 25 to name Harrell as the lone finalist out of seven applicants.
“There is no greater champion for our children in school than you,” said trustee Anabel White.
That sentiment carried through comments made by present trustees, who included Javier Flores, Roland Sanchez and Laura Perez.
The four trustees voted unanimously to appoint Harrell to the position his father, John Harrell, held from 1992 until he retired in 2000. John, who served as assistant superintendent from 1971 to 1992, also served as interim superintendent for six months in 2012-2013. Praising him as a homegrown talent, trustees lauded Hal Harrell as a dedicated leader who has the district’s best interest in mind.
