Humble ISD has selected Terry Perkins as the new deputy superintendent. The position was previously held by Dr. Roger Brown, who is retiring. The deputy superintendent works closely with the superintendent in the administration of schools and educational services.
Perkins’ experience includes 21 years in education and 20 years of military service. He returns to Humble ISD from Crosby ISD, where he served as Crosby High School principal since 2016. He previously was a government teacher and basketball coach at Humble High School, an economics teacher at Atascocita High School, an assistant principal at Ross Sterling Middle School and Kingwood Park High School, and associate principal at Atascocita High School. Before Humble ISD, he worked for the Fort Bend and Mineral Wells school districts.
He earned his master’s degree from Sam Houston State University and his bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas-Austin. From 1989 to 2009, he served in the Army National Guard, advancing to the rank of major. His military career included planning, leading and directing the operations of a 740-soldier cavalry squadron on an overseas deployment to Egypt.
Perkins grew up in Brownwood, Texas. He lives in Humble with his wife, Brandi, a licensed specialist in school psychology in the district, and together they have six children, five of whom are school age and attend Humble ISD schools.
“Humble ISD is home and I am so excited about working with everyone who makes up the Humble ISD family,” Perkins said. “Together, we will continue to focus on providing students and families with the best educational experiences possible.”
