Following the recommendation of North Lamar ISD Superintendent Kelli Stewart, the North Lamar ISD Board of Trustees approved to hire Dee Hudson as principal of Stone Middle School during the regular meeting Monday night. Hudson fills the position Stewart left to serve the district as interim superintendent in March 2019.
“Mrs. Hudson is known for building positive relationships with our students and staff,” said Stewart. “She works collaboratively with the current staff and has exceptional communication skills. I strongly believe that she will continue to grow pride within the middle school and the district.”
Hudson has been a Special Education inclusion teacher at Stone Middle School since moving to North Lamar with her family in 2018 from Waxahachie ISD where she served as assistant principal at Marvin Elementary. Beginning the summer of 2019, Hudson has also served as North Lamar’s elementary summer school principal overseeing the daily operations of grades K-5.
“I am honored and excited to have the opportunity to serve as the new Principal of Frank Stone Middle School,” said Hudson. “I am committed to promoting and pursuing excellence for our school, staff, students, parents, and community. Together, we can grow the great legacy at Stone and facilitate the success of all students.”
Hudson earned her bachelor’s degree in business administration from The University of Houston and master’s degree in educational leadership and policy studies at The University of Texas at Arlington. She also received an alternative certification in special education from The University of St. Thomas in Houston.
Hudson is married to her husband, Chris, and together they have two children, Anthony, a sixth grader, and Danielle, a second grader, who both attend North Lamar. She enjoys camping, boating, and spending time with her family.
