The Hollister R-V School District has selected Dr. Jared Terry to serve as the next principal of Hollister High School, effective July 1, upon the retirement of Mr. Terry Jamieson.
Dr. Terry is in his second year as principal at Hollister Middle School. He has 11 years of administrative experience and has served in education for 14 years.
“I have had the privilege of working with Dr. Terry in Hollister as well as two years before our time here,” states Mr. Jamieson. “I have always appreciated his kindness and integrity. I could not be more honored to have him as my successor.”
Dr. Brian Wilson, superintendent of the Hollister R-V School District says, “Dr. Terry has become an invaluable part of the Hollister School District. He is a genuine leader who has built a culture focused on student learning. During his time of leadership at Hollister Middle School, his passion for providing the highest quality education to each and every student, his commitment to student success in both college and career readiness, and his desire to cultivate tomorrow’s leaders has been evident. We are pleased to announce that Dr. Terry will continue his leadership service at Hollister High School.”
Dr. Terry states that he is looking forward to working with the staff at Hollister High School to help prepare students for the next stage of their lives. “High school is an exciting time where students are learning of the opportunities that are available to them and I really enjoy helping them find those opportunities. Hollister High School is a great place and I look forward to being a part of that team.”
Succeeding Dr. Terry at Hollister Middle School is Mrs. Rachel Hodges. Currently serving as HMS Assistant Principal, Hodges is in her 4th year with the district. She has served in education for 14 years.
“Mrs. Hodges will be an amazing principal. She has a heart for the kids and staff of HMS and will continue to build on the great relationships she has with our families,” Dr. Terry says, “I am excited to see the success of our students and staff under her leadership.”
Mrs. Hodges shares that she is honored to be entrusted with the leadership of Hollister Middle School. “It is a special place that I love and have called home for the last four years. When you step through the front doors of HMS, you’re forever a part of this family. My children, husband, and I have made this place our home and look forward to continuing our journey here at Hollister. Watching the students and teachers grow has been the best part of my job, and I look forward to working toward providing more opportunities to extend the learning for both students and teachers.”
Hollister’s administration will begin the search for the new middle school assistant principal in the near future.
