Northwest ISD has named Amanda Bomar as the next principal of Hughes Elementary School, bringing a veteran leader to the campus. Ms. Bomar will replace Dr. Jessica McDonald, who was recently named the inaugural principal of Daniel Elementary School, after the 2022-2023 school year concludes.

Ms. Bomar currently serves as principal of Pecan Creek Elementary School in Denton ISD, which she has led since 2019. Prior to becoming a principal, Ms. Bomar served as an assistant principal in Denton ISD for five years. She believes in instilling a positive culture that permeates her school campus, and she said she looks forward to building lasting relationships with students, families and staff.

“I’m so excited to become a Hughes Hawk and get to know our community firsthand,” she said. “A strong school starts with a great environment, and I know Dr. McDonald and the teachers and staff have created just that. Our Hawks are on a path to excellence, and we will continue to live up to our mission of ensuring all students are ready for personal success.”

Prior to her time as a school administrator, Ms. Bomar served as a curriculum administrator for three years. She began her career in Crockett ISD as an intermediate school teacher and has also served students in Lufkin ISD and Mesquite ISD.

Throughout her career, Ms. Bomar has earned accolades for her professional abilities, including being nominated for the HEB Outstanding Teacher Award and earning multiple teaching grants. She has led presentations regarding instructional leadership, professional learning and other categories both in her school districts and across the region.

Ms. Bomar earned her Master of Educational Leadership from Stephen F. Austin University, graduating summa cum laude, and she earned her bachelor’s degree in education from East Texas Baptist University.
