RISD will soon be welcoming its new superintendent, James Oliver, on February 1st of the 2021 semester. I went to meet Mr. Oliver at the Meet and Greet held at the Gilmer Memorial Library last Wednesday, where he agreed to a feature in the Texas Mohair Weekly. We wanted to ask him a few questions about his background, as well as his interests, so that the Rocksprings community could get to know their newest administrator/educator on a more personal level.
