Rick Sralla Named New Tivy High School Principal

Dec. 18, 2023 – The KISD Board of Trustees approved the hiring of Rick Sralla as the new principal at Tivy High School during a regular board meeting Monday night.

Sralla returns to KISD, where he spent 20 years previously as a teacher, coach and administrator before taking the position of middle school principal at a neighboring district for the past three years.

“We are excited to welcome Rick Sralla back to the Kerrville ISD Family,” said Brent Ringo, Superintendent of KISD. “Hiring the principal of Tivy High School is not just about finding a leader; it’s about finding someone who will continue to inspire, guide, and cultivate TFND with the staff and students on campus. Mr. Sralla truly understands the meaning of Tivy Fight Never Dies, and he will continue the tradition of instilling grit and excellence as the Principal of Tivy High School.”

Sralla holds a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Texas at Tyler and has 23 years in education after starting out as a teacher at Tivy. Sralla has served as principal of the Disciplinary Alternative Education Program at KISD for four years, assistant principal at Hal Peterson Middle School for three years before serving as a middle school principal at Ingram ISD most recently.

“It’s great to be home,” Sralla said. “I consider Kerrville ISD my home. I’m here to serve this community. It is an unbelievable honor to put the blue and gold on and live Tivy Fight Never Dies. I’m looking forward to this.”

Sralla’s wife Amy is the head athletic trainer and teaches Dual Anatomy and Physiology at Tivy High School. The Srallas have two children: Aveson and Slaid.

Sralla will begin his tenure as Tivy High School Principal in January.
