Out-going Nederland ISD Superintendent Robin Perez, who served in the position for four years and spearheaded the district’s recently awarded bond for widespread updates of the education facilities, died Tuesday after a battle with cancer, the district announced in a statement.
“For those that knew her, it goes without saying, Dr. Perez had a desire in her heart for education and the children she served,” a statement shared by the district said. “She took every opportunity to think outside of the box, fight for the whole child, and looked far into the future of what education may look like in years to come.”
Board President Micah Mosley said in a statement that the board was “extremely saddened to learn of Robin’s passing.”
“We were fortunate to have her serve our District and I know those where she served before Nederland would say the same,” Mosley said. “She was a visionary that was dedicated to adapting to each individual students needs all while keeping true to the traditions of Nederland ISD. We look forward to building upon the foundation she leaves behind to continue striving towards excellence. Our sincerest thoughts and prayers will remain with her husband, children, grandson and extended family."
