My name is Bobby Rice and I am so excited about joining Harts Bluff ISD as superintendent.  I have been on the job since July 1 and have already seen how this school and community is a FAMILY.  I come to Harts Bluff from Gilmer ISD, where I served from 2010.  I have a total of 25 years in education that began in Jacksonville ISD.  I have been married to Melissa for 26 years.  We met at Stephen F. Austin State University while working on our bachelor’s degrees.  We stayed there for our Master’s in Administration.  I received my Doctorate from Sam Houston State University and she received her Master’s in Counseling.  We have two wonderful boys, Blake and Brett.  Blake is currently a senior at Sam Houston State University and Brett is beginning his college experience at Texas A&M.  I am looking foward to becoming a part of the community and serving the students of Harts Bluff ISD.  If you have any questions, please contact me.
