Southside ISD welcomed two new directors this month. Although these proud Cardinals are new to the position they are not unique to Southside ISD. We are happy to see our family of professionals excel. Here are Dr. Ernesto Salinas and Ms. Melissa Martinez;
Here is a word for the new Director of Special Programs, Dr. Ernesto Salinas:
