Welcome from the Principal


Welcome to Plains Secondary. My name is Jorge Mendez and I am excited to start my first year as the principal of this great school. My family is excited to be part of Plains ISD as both of my children will be attending as a incoming 6th grader and 2nd grader. I began my teaching career with Olton ISD as a math teacher. I have also worked at Lubbock ISD before moving to Snyder, where I served as an assistant principal and then principal of Snyder Junior High for 8 years.

I am proud to serve at Plains ISD and will work hard to help our students "Strive for Excellence'. I believe in building leaders among our students and will work on establishing a culture where our students both have a say and are leading the Cowboy way! I would like to invite our community and parents to our school and encourage each of you to be involved. We are set for a great year and look forward to see what our students will achieve this year.
