A junior at Cedar Hill High School is doing Something Good and taking on a top job at the Cedar Hill Independent School District.
Skylar Wesley was officially given the title of Cedar Hill ISD Teen Superintendent at Monday’s Board of Trustees meeting. She will now be a voice for her classmates and serve as a liaison between the administration and the CHISD scholars.
Wesley will work alongside the actual superintendent, Dr. Gerald Hudson, and play a key role in communicating directly with students, not just at her school, but at every campus across the district.
“I was in complete shock, honestly, because we have a total of 12 schools, seven elementary, three middle, and two high schools, and they told me that I was going to be helping the scholars at all these schools,” said Wesley. “I was just like, 'Wow, this is amazing.' I was very very excited.”
The latest news from around North Texas.
Wesley had to submit an application for the job. Then she went through virtual interviews with a panel of Cedar Hill ISD employees.
Finally, she had an in-person interview with the superintendent himself before she was offered the job as the first CHISD teen superintendent.
Wesley said she plans to attend Texas Christian University or Texas Southern with a career goal of becoming a dentist. But, she hasn’t ruled out becoming a superintendent one day.
