Dr. Nola Wellman announced Thursday that she is retiring after 10 years as Superintendent of Eanes ISD. She will remain Superintendent through August 2014.

After 10 years as Eanes ISD Superintendent, Dr. Nola Wellman announced her retirement today.

During her time as superintendent, Eanes ISD made headlines when it provided iPads to all of its students, one of the first school districts in the state to do so.

Wellman managed two successful bond elections and was in charge when there were major renovations to the Westlake High School Library and Fine Arts Facility.

“I feel that it is the right time for me to seek other adventures that life has to offer,” Dr. Wellman said in a statement. “The Eanes community is a special place that supports and values its young people and their education, and the staff in the district are caring, giving people for whom I have the utmost respect. I am and will always be committed to public education and the promise and hope it holds for our nation.”

Wellman will remain superintendent until the end of August, 2014. In the meantime, she will work with the Eanes School Board to create a transition plan for the district.
