Principal Brandi Hosack's Farewell

April 27, 2018

Dear Akins High School Community,

It is with a heavy heart that I write this letter to share some important news with the students, faculty, families and greater school community of W. Charles Akins High School. 

A few days ago, I was offered, and accepted, the Principal position at North Forney High School in Forney ISD, a growing suburb of Dallas.  The opportunity to move and be near family is the ultimate driver of this decision but it is bittersweet, at best, to leave the school family I have known and loved for the last 14 years.

I want to thank all of you for the amazing support and dedication you have shown to this school and to me, personally.  I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to lead W. Charles Akins High School and will always be thankful for the relationships I have built along the way.  There are no words that could possibly express my gratitude.  Akins High School will always be a part of who I am both as an educator, and as a human being.  It is an incredibly special place.

Please know that I am fully dedicated to Akins HS for the remainder of the school year, through graduation, and during the transitional period of new leadership.  Dr. Shapiro and the AISD High School Office staff will be working with our school community in the coming days to inform everyone of the next steps in that process.  

To my Akins Eagles – the most difficult part is saying goodbye to you.  You, the students, are the reason I get excited to come to school every day.  Go out into this world and be a positive agent of change.  I love you all, tremendously. 


Brandi Hosack, Principal
