“I applaud HISD and the historical step they have taken by selecting a woman to lead the district’s athletic program,” said Dambrino. “The task is large and the challenges are many but I am excited and am looking forward to what lies ahead. I love the Houston Independent School district, I love this city, and I thank everyone who has shown their support for me in my new role.”
