NISD Recommends Carri Eddy, Ed.D. as Executive Director of Student Services
At a special board meeting on August 6, the Northwest ISD Board of Trustees approved the naming of Carri Eddy, Ed.D. as the new executive director of student services.
Currently, Dr. Eddy is the principal of V.R. Eaton High School where she opened the campus in 2015. Previously, she has served in Rockwall ISD as the director of secondary campus services and principal of Utley Middle School. Dr. Eddy has worked in Forney ISD and Mesquite ISD as a teacher, high school assistant principal, fine arts coordinator, registrar and safety officer.
“I am excited to begin this new position with the school district,” said Eddy. “I will miss my Eaton High School community and will always be an Eagle at heart. I look forward to working with all of the campuses in Northwest ISD as we prepare students to be ready for all life has to offer.”
Dr. Eddy earned her doctorate and master’s in education administration from Texas A&M Commerce. She holds a bachelor’s in biology from the University of Texas-Arlington. Eddy was named a ‘Top 5 Finalist’ for the HEB Excellence in Education Award for Secondary Principal of the Year in 2012-13.
Dr. Eddy will assume her new role in central administration immediately while assisting with the transition at Eaton High School. The district will begin the search for her replacement at Eaton High School and intends to name a principal at the August 13 school board meeting. Families will be notified as soon as the replacement has been approved by the school board.
