While you don’t often see district superintendents attend sporting events, Big Spring Superintendent Richard Fry has spent 16-plus years glued to the sidelines.

Fry, who recently announced his plans to retire this summer, has missed just three Big Spring football games as superintendent prior to this past season -- a year where COVID-19 restrictions limited spectators. He worked double duty most nights, more often than not attending a Big Spring High School sporting event or concert.
