The Prosper ISD School Board is extremely proud to announce that Dr. Holly Ferguson has been named the lone finalist to lead Prosper Independent School District as the new Superintendent of Schools.
Beginning her educational career in Prosper ISD as a 3rd and 4th grade teacher in 1998, Dr. Ferguson has served Prosper ISD in several capacities as well as gaining educational experience in Frisco ISD as a Teacher, ESL Cluster Teacher, Reading Interventionist, and Assistant Principal. While serving in Prosper for 13 years, Dr. Ferguson has been an Elementary Teacher, Campus Principal, Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction, and Associate Superintendent.
Dr. Ferguson received both her Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and her Master’s in Educational Administration from the University of North Texas. She completed her Doctorate degree in Educational Leadership from Texas A&M Commerce. She is happily married to her husband of 22 years, David, a Fire Captain in Frisco. Together they have two children, Cade, a Prosper ISD 2020 graduate and Ty, an incoming 9 th grader at PHS. Dr. Ferguson enjoys watching her children engage in their extra-curricular and co-curricular activities during her free time.
For the past three years, Dr. Ferguson has been serving Prosper ISD as the Associate Superintendent. After being named the lone finalist for the position, she released the following statement. “I never would have imagined the day I decided to become a teacher that one day I would be the Prosper ISD Superintendent. You see I chose this job to be a teacher and make a difference for kids. That was the only title I ever wanted or ever needed. I have been blessed beyond measure by the one and only Dr. Watkins because he took a chance on me as a young principal and believed in me when I didn’t really deserve it. I have grown up in this District, and over the years I have learned more about life than I could have ever imagined. Prosper Proud! WE ARE PROSPER, WE ARE ONE!”
Excellence will forge ahead when Dr. Ferguson “officially” takes over the reins after the legally required 21-day waiting period.
