It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our former principal, Mr. Tim Wright, who served the patrons of Dawson ISD from 1994 to 2000. Mr. Wright was a visionary leader, a dedicated educator, and a beloved mentor to many students and staff. He was instrumental in shaping the culture and direction of our school district. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
He is survived by his wife, Sherri, two children, Katie and Patti, and four grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, February 17, 2024, at 1:00 pm at the Rio Vista First Baptist Church, 201 South Cleburne Whitney Road, Rio Vista, TX 76093. If you have a shirt that represents the school you and Tim were associated with, please wear that or your school color if possible.
