Henrietta Board of Trustees Unanimously Approves Jaime Clark as HISD Superintendent

Clark’s appointment was finalized Monday after the state-mandated 21-day waiting period.


Henrietta, TX, May 15, 2023 - The Henrietta ISD (HISD) Board of Trustees made it official Monday night, unanimously approving Jaime Clark as the district’s new superintendent, after naming her Lone Finalist on April 23. The appointment was made after the state-mandated 21-day waiting period, and her first day as superintendent is expected to be June 1.

Clark is no stranger to big dreams built on the solid foundation provided by a close-knit community like Henrietta, growing up just 30 miles down US-287 in Bowie. It was the draw of that community feel that attracted Clark and her family to the opportunity in HISD.

“I’ve been fortunate to have experiences in many different types of organizations,” Clark said. “But the chance to lead a district as special as Henrietta doesn’t come along every day. I am incredibly honored the Board selected me for this opportunity, and for my family’s support in making this move. We are all thrilled to be Bearcats!”

Clark comes to HISD with a strong reputation for leadership, community engagement, and creating a positive environment for students and staff alike, all qualities HISD Board President Brad Yurcho said sold the Board on Clark.

“There is no question Jaime was the perfect choice to lead our district,” Yurcho said. “She is a relationship builder and a communicator with a proven track record for success. Her experience speaks for itself, and I know our community is going to embrace Jaime and her family.”

Clark comes to HISD from Lewisville ISD, where she currently serves as Chief of Elementary Schools where she is responsible for providing support and leadership to 21 elementary campuses in the district, representing over 8,000 students. In addition to her administrative experience, Clark spent time in the classroom as a high school math teacher and volleyball coach.

Throughout her professional career, Clark has led her campuses in implementing innovative programs to develop students into 21st century learners. She has elevated parent engagement numbers by participating in numerous community outreach programs.

Clark is a two-time graduate of Tarleton State University. She received her Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Sports/Health Studies along with a mathematics minor while receiving a master’s degree in education administration. Clark also earned her superintendent certification from the University of Texas - Tyler in 2019.

Jaime is married to Robby Clark, and together they have four children; Cagen and Conley, who are in college and Chaden and Cabrey, who will join Jaime and Robby in Henrietta.
