The Bonham ISD Board of Trustees voted to approve Mrs. Rory Hilliard as Finley-Oates Assistant Principal beginning July 1, 2022. Mrs. Hilliard is currently in her 4th year as Principal of the Bailey Inglish Early Childhood Center. Prior to that, she served as BISD Technology Integrationist and was a teacher at IW Evans for five years. Mrs. Hilliard has eleven years of experience in education, all of which have been with BISD.
Mrs. Hilliard states, “As a little girl growing up in Bonham, I was fortunate to have Mr. Thad Finley as my neighbor on Lusk Street. He had once been the principal at Bailey Inglish where I attended elementary school for the first, second, and third grades. Four years ago, I had the fantastic opportunity to return to Bailey Inglish and serve as Principal. This July, I look forward to coming full circle by serving at the Finley-Oates campus, named after my sweet neighbor, and continuing his dedication to educating young children. As Assistant Principal, I hope to make a positive and impactful difference in the lives of all students, families, and staff by building relationships, sharing a passion for learning, supporting our endeavors, and celebrating our successes. I am so excited to become a part of the Finley-Oates Tribe!”
Finley-Oates and Bonham ISD are honored to have Mrs. Hilliard serve as Assistant Principal and we look forward to the positive impact she will continue to have on BISD.
