Back to School 2022

DeSoto ISD Interim Superintendent Dr. Larry Lewis greeted students, faculty and staff on campuses throughout the District Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2022 as they returned to start the second semester.

DeSoto High School was the first stop as Dr. Lewis made his way throughout entrances, hallways and offices, holding conversations with many and thanking them for being present. Named interim superintendent in December, his interactions with students, parents and staff members conveyed his intentional approach of being involved in the DeSoto ISD community.

Later, Dr. Lewis made his way to Frank Moates Elementary School. He walked the hallways, met individually with educators learning their educational strategies and delightfully engaged with office staff.

Dr. Lewis’ presence was known and felt as a partner in delivering quality education to all stakeholders.

“The greatest need for the DeSoto ISD community is to be the beacon that it is, the top performer that it is, the excellent school district that it is” Dr. Lewis said. “We’re going to make sure that that happens for this community that is so deserving, that has done so much for the students and families of the DeSoto ISD, and we’re going to do our part for them.”

Dr. Lewis’ visits cemented his desire to be a participant in the learning experience. His warm welcome made others feel welcomed and assured as being an integral part of a team that keeps students as the sole focus and ensures their success.
