Big Spring Independent School District trustees will soon begin searching in earnest for a new superintendent.
Current Superintendent Steven Saldivar, who headed BSISD since 2008, announced Tuesday he will be leaving within the next few weeks to accept a similar position with Anthony ISD. Saldivar's hiring at Anthony is expected to become official Aug. 20.
â€śHe helped our school district,â€ť Board President Irene Rodriguez said. â€śI have nothing but good things to say about Steven â€¦ and I wish him and his family the best at Anthony.â€ť
The tradition stays alive as the United Way of Big Spring and Howard County gear up for the 69th annual campaign kick-off Aug. 17 at the Big Spring Country Club, starting at 6 p.m.
â€śAs always, the entire board is ready to jump feet first into what we are expecting to be another successful campaign,â€ť said Ann McClarty, United Way of Big Spring and Howard County president.
Tickets are $25 per person. Due to the venue, there will be limited seating. The evening will include heavy hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar, live music from Freeride and a silent auction.
