SHERMAN, Tex. -- The Sherman Independent School District is now searching for a new high school principal after Thomas O’Neal turned in his resignation on Friday.

O’Neal was in Sherman, for three years. He accepted a position at Anna High School as principal.

The move will allow O’Neal to work with students while pursuing his Doctorate at the University of North Texas.

Sherman ISD superintendent Al Hambrick says the district has posted the position and is working on filling the position. The superintendent says O’Neal will be missed.

Hambrick says he hopes to have someone in place by the start of the school year.

    I have known Thomas O'Neal for more years than probably anyone in this area. I love him like a brother. He is always kind to animals and has always treated everyone with respect. The only thing he has ever put ahead of his school is his family. Most of the time he has sacrificed many hours he could have spent with them, to ensure the students of SISD get the best education possible with the resources available. Be assured that Anna is getting a great man and that Thomas O'Neal will be successful anywhere he goes. Thomas, I wish you the best and may life always be as good to you as you are to everyone you meet.

    Lets see Hambrick worked and got his Doctrate while he was Principal at the high school ( check it out). Maybe Mr. Oneal who is working on his Doctorate was not allowed to do so by the very same person who himself got his. ( check it out)

    As a Sherman High School teacher I would like to say that Thomas O'Neal was a wonderful, kind--easy to talk to---boss. Mr. O'Neal was comitted to make SHS the very best school possible. The teachers as SHS will miss him and only wish him and his family the very best. Our loss is Anna's gain. I was also a teacher at SHS when Dr. Hambrick was the principal, now he is my boss as superintendant. The people of Sherman are lucky to have him as the head of the SHS schools. Dr. Hambrick puts in countless hours both when he was principal at SHS and now as me...we are getting our moneys worth.

    Sound like you all can't take a honest and fair leadership in Sherman. Look what you all accomplished as a whole with your education program. Like anyone, that replace someone out of the norm, you have to work bugs out of the system. Sound like there are some bugs to worked out. Keep up the good work Hambrick. You will have someone by start of school. With open arms. Good luck to the Principal, and someday you too may become Superintendent of Anna.

    Let's all wish Mr. O'Neal good luck in his new position and look forward to what we can do to make Sherman a better place for our kids. We need to focus on making sure our kids have a safe and highly instructional environment. The schools district is in chaos right now with a new math and science curriculum ( costing how much money money when we just adopted Math textbooks) a high school (2 principals short), little to no support from Central Office of the Principals and their staffs and a school budget running our of control. Parents need to get involved in their kids education and stand up for what they believe in THEIR KIDS!!!

    Reno, you just had to bring your "god" into the discussion didn't you. You do realize that religion is only organized superstition don't you.

    I was born and raised in Sherman. Having gone through the entire SISD school system plus attended GCC, i can tell you i got a better education than most. While i was there Dr. Hambrick was principal and he did a better job than most could ever have. I dont believe any of you have a right to comment on here about this subject unless you've gone to school here and experienced both of these men doing there jobs. Good for Mr. O'Neal for wanting to further and better his career. Good luck to you.

    Tom....I have to say that I disagree with you. I believe that being a Godly man, as is the case with Mr. O'Neal and Dr. Hambrick, does make them much more capable of handling such an important job than someone who is not a Godly person. I know that both men pray about decisions before making them and I believe that with God leading them, they will not go wrong. If you truly feel that Dr. Hambrick is in over his head (I completely disagree with you), this is not the place to discuss it. Please show him some well-deserved respect and visit with him privately. I believe that disrespectful, public comments are inappropriate and I don't see any good that will come from it.
