Torres Named Lone Finalist for Superintendent Position

Cynthia Torres, selected as La Feria ISD’s new Superintendent

On Tuesday, April 19, 2022, the La Feria Independent School District Board of Trustees selected and named Mrs. Cynthia Anne Torres as the Finalist for the position of Superintendent of Schools for the District.

From Mrs. Cynthia Torres:
I am humbled and honored that the school board has named me as the finalist for the position of Superintendent of Schools for the La Feria Independent School District. I believe it was the foundation I received in La Feria as a student from grades K-12 as well as great mentors that I have worked with as an educator in the district that prepared me for this leadership position. I have worked for the district for 32 years beginning as a junior high English language arts teacher, transitioning as an administrator in the Department of Curriculum & Instruction, and then serving as Assistant Superintendent for 8 years. This past year I served as Assistant Superintendent in Sharyland ISD. I have had the privilege of working with amazing superintendents, teachers, and support staff.

Education is arguably the most vital partnership in any community. Achieving success as a superintendent requires the commitment to keep children at the forefront of every decision that is made and model and hold the highest expectations for all stakeholders. As the leader of our District, I will work side-by-side with the board, students, parents, staff, and the community to provide those opportunities for our students to excel.

I am excited about what the future holds for La Feria ISD, and believe that collectively as one district and one community with one focus – we will achieve student success.
