Ysleta ISD is holding a welcome reception for new superintendent, Dr. Xavier De La Torre Wednesday night.
De La Torre was named to the position in February. He served as the Socorro Independent School District Superintendent from 2009 until 2012. He departed in 2012 after accepting a similar position in California.
The reception is happening at the Atrium of YISD Central Office at 9600 Sims Dr. from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 9.
YISD has been without a permanent leader since June 2013, when Dr. Michael Zolkoski announced his retirement, citing family health issues.
