PHS Principal Lujan retires

PRESIDIO – After six years working with the Presidio ISD, Mr. Santos Lujan will be retiring as the high school and early college principal.

His last day at the school is Friday, March 8.

“It’s time to get off the merry-go-round and see what life is like without alarm clocks and stress,” announced Mr. Lujan of his last few weeks as PHS principal.

“I have genuinely enjoyed my six years in Presidio,” he said. “We have a rich culture, unmatched anywhere else.”

Mr. Lujan has been in education for more than 47 years, including six years at Presidio High School.

Students and staff are sad to hear of Mr. Lujan’s decision.

“I will miss him, sad to see such an amazing person leave our campus,” said freshman Alejandro Baeza.

And senior Omar Tavarez added, “He was my principal since I was a freshman. He cares about you a lot. He is always there for you. Instead of getting mad at you when you do something bad, he sat and talked to you about it. I would like for him to be at graduation, since he has been here from the start.”

With the end of year push, Mr. Lujan reminds all to “keep the focus.”

“I would like to thank all the faculty and staff for the truly spectacular six years,” stated Lujan.

Dr. Tibayan will fill in for the remainder of the school year as the high school principal.
