MISSION—After months conducting a search for a new superintendent of schools, Mission Consolidated Independent School District Board of Trustees approved a lone finalist at a special meeting Tuesday in a 4-3 split vote.
Finalist Ricardo Lopez started his career in education in 1995 as a history teacher at Ranchland Hills Middle School with Ysleta ISD, in the El Paso area. He climbed the ranks to become assistant principal and principal of three different high schools within the district.
Currently, Lopez serves as one of three area associate superintendents, for Ysleta School District. He supervises 25 schools and the 17,000 students that attend them.
