“Jay’s extensive leadership experiences across the globe are impressive as well as his successes in helping bring about improved learning in the schools he has led,” said Dr. Brad Meeks, SSSD superintendent.

“I’m excited and committed to working with staff, students and families across this incredible district,” Hamric stated.
