Sealy ISD Board of Trustees Name Lone Finalist for Superintendent Position
It is with great pleasure that Sealy Independent School District announces Dr. Bryan Hallmark from Georgetown ISD as its lone finalist for superintendent. The search process which began in February had intense interest. Over 80 initial applications were evaluated by the board of trustees following the March 11th application deadline. After evaluations and interviews which concluded Friday, April 3rd, 2020, the SISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously 7-0 to name Dr. Hallmark and begin the mandatory 21-day waiting period before a formal contract can be reached and approved.
“We believe Dr. Bryan Hallmark and his family will be a great fit for our school district and our community,” says Board President Ryan Reichardt. “His experience and skill set will enhance the many great things going on at SISD and continue to ensure that all students of SISD will be prepared to positively impact the world. Leadership that will be vital to our continued success long term as well as the hopefully short term recovery of the COVID-19 events.”
Dr. Hallmark comes to Sealy ISD from Georgetown where he serves as Assistant Superintendent of Operations and School Leadership. He made the move to Georgetown ISD as Executive Director of School Leadership in 2015 from La Grange, where he served as High School Principal. Dr. Hallmark spent the first seven years of his career as a social studies teacher and coach before moving into administration. Dr. Hallmark’s educational background includes a Doctorate degree from Texas A&M University, a Master’s degree from Sam Houston State University, and a Bachelor’s degree from Tarleton State University.
Dr. Hallmark and his wife Andrea have 19 years of experience in public education. Mrs. Hallmark currently serves as an elementary teacher. The Hallmarks have two children, Cole 11 and Carly 4.
Dr. Hallmark stated, “We are really excited to bring our family to Sealy. Sealy ISD is a district with strong traditions and a long history of success. I cannot wait to meet the talented students and staff.”
Following the 21-day period and a formal contract, it is expected that Dr. Hallmark shall begin his duties at SISD in late April. Current SISD Superintendent Sheryl Moore will officially retire June 30th and aid in the transition of leadership during these uncertain times for public education.
