The Eanes ISD Board of Trustees has unanimously named Dr. Tom Leonard as its lone finalist for the position of Superintendent of Schools to succeed retiring Superintendent, Dr. Nola Wellman.
In making the announcement, Eanes Board President Rob Hargett said, “Dr. Leonard is a successful, student-centered, seasoned superintendent in a high-performing district, roughly the size and structure of Eanes ISD. He is a creative problem-solver with a focus on developing well-rounded students, who are guided by their interests and enthusiasm. We are confident that his energy and insights will inspire the district in its quest for excellence.”
Dr. Leonard has served as superintendent in Barrington [Illinois] 220 School District for seven years. During his tenure as superintendent, four Barrington campuses were named as Blue Ribbon schools, and the high school achieved the highest ACT scores in district history.
