My name is Ray Keith and it is an honor that I serve as Superintendent of Happy ISD. I am from a small town in North Central Texas, called Byers. It is very similar to Happy, a farm and ranch community, just north of Wichita Falls, near the Red River. I am a graduate of Midwestern State University and I received my Master of Education degree from there as well. I have been in education for 21 years. I had the privilege to coach basketball and teach high school math in my home town for 10 years. I then coached and taught in the Petrolia school district for a couple of years before adding the role of a junior high campus administrator. Prior to coming to Happy, my wife (Laurie) and I spent a year and a half in Arizona. We had the chance to spend some time with our two daughters and 3 grandchildren who all live in Maricopa, AZ.
