Bulldog Proud!

Hello everyone! My name is Chris Whorton and I am proud to be joining Eustace High School as the new principal. (Don’t worry! Mr. Sowers will be across the parking lot as Assistant Superintendent.) I was formerly the Middle School Principal, Assistant High School Principal, and Band Director in Kerens.
I want to let everyone know that I will be posting important updates on this blog, as well as Twitter, Facebook, and our new Instagram page. It is my intention to reach out to you by whatever means that you best communicate. As long as you follow one of the four pages, you should be able to get any and all information pertaining to Eustace High School.
Again, I am pleased to be joining such a great team at EISD and look forward to meeting all of you soon.
