The Royse City Independent School District has announced the hiring of a new facilities and operations executive director, Jim Lawson, who will begin his role later this month. 

Lawson holds a degree from Texas A&M University and has more than 20 years in school construction, maintenance and facilities management. His prior school experience comes from Rockwall ISD and Amarillo ISD.

Royse City ISD Chief Financial Officer Byron Bryant said Lawson’s hiring “could not come at a better time.” 

“With the current and upcoming bond-related construction, we know that he brings a wealth of experience in construction and project management,” Bryant said. “In addition, his unique background in purchasing will serve us well in getting the best value with our bond dollars.”
