John Wink currently serves as superintendent of schools for Blue Ridge ISD in Blue Ridge, TX. In his most recent position, John served at the Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment for the Tatum Independent School District in Tatum, TX from 2014 to 2016. Prior to that, John served as principal at Gilmer Elementary School (2011-2014) where he led the school through school improvement status to academic distinction. As principal of Hallsville Middle School (2002-2008), HMS moved from Acceptable to Exemplary status in 4 years, and as principal of Hallsville High School (2008-2011), he led the school to become one of the top academic high schools in Texas. 

In all of these schools, student success improved dramatically due to the focused leadership structures, outstanding teachers, and a collaborative philosophy that collectively empowered all educators to create a positive school culture, design instructional structures to support students, and eliminate ineffective and inefficient practices.  The result of these actions led teachers to focus on learning by focusing on the adult learning first. Every campus achieved greatness in its own unique way because the strategies capitalized on the staff's strengths, the campus traditions, and the campus’ commitment to it’s mission of guaranteeing excellence for all.
