Terry Perkins will take on the role of deputy superintendent at Humble ISD on July 1.

Terry Perkins will take on the role of deputy superintendent at Humble ISD on July 1.

In light of Humble ISD Deputy Superintendent Roger Brown announcing his retirement in May, the district recently hired Crosby High School Principal Terry Perkins to serve in the position, according to a May 24 news release from HISD.

Jamie Mount, director of public communications at HISD, said via email that Brown's retirement date has not yet been finalized. Brown has worked at HISD since 2014, when he was hired as associate superintendent of support services. He took on the role of deputy superintendent in 2017, Mount said.

Perkins has 21 years of experience working in education, as he worked in Fort Bend and Mineral Wells ISDs before starting at HISD in 2000. During his time in HISD, Perkins worked as a government teacher and basketball coach at Humble High School, an economics teacher at Atascocita High School, an assistant principal at Ross Sterling Middle School and Kingwood Park High School, and an associate Principal at Atascocita High School, according to the release.

Mount said he worked for HISD from 2000-06, but was then deployed oversees during the 2006-07 school year with the Army National Guard. Perkins returned to work for HISD in 2016 and continued working for the district until 2016, when he took the position of principal at Crosby High School.

Perkins' official start date as deputy superintendent at HISD will be July 1; however, it will be in a transitional period until Brown retires, Mount said.

Additionally, Perkins and his family live in Humble, with five of this school-age children attending HISD, according to the release.

“Humble ISD is home and I am so excited about working with everyone who makes up the Humble ISD Family,” Perkins said in the release. “Together, we will continue to focus on providing students and families with the best educational experiences possible.”
