I enjoy everything that a school Snyder’s size has to offer. It is large enough that every student can find a program to be a part of and it is small enough to develop positive relationships with every student. Growing up in this area of Texas, I have always admired the Snyder Tigers. I am looking forward to working with the staff and students here.”
