Ruth Ann Vessels

I was born and raised in Perryton, Texas and graduated from Perryton High School in 1981. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Panhandle State University in 1986 and a Masters of Education from West Texas A & M University in 2004. I have 33 years experience in education. Prior to joining Hereford ISD I coached and taught at Frenship and Dumas. I am starting my 18th year in Hereford.  I was the Associate Principal at Hereford High School for 8 years and then moved to Hereford Junior High. I was named Director of Curriculum & Learning in the Fall of 2015 and currently serve as the Chief Curriculum and Instruction Officer. 
My husband and I have two children. Our daughter, Jordan is Director of Basketball Operations at Texas Tech University. Our son, Jace and his wife Alexa live in Canyon. They manage our auction company and are parents of our granddaughter, Endee. My hobbies include watching sports, reading, "picking" antiques, and attending auctions.
