Turrubiates Named Principal at Murray
            Alfredo Turrubiates (shown here helping a student with a bus assignment) toured his new school on Tuesday, shortly after the official announcement that he has been named principal of Murray Elementary School.
            Mr TThe $14 million school – the first new elementary built in Hobbs in the past 30 years – is on schedule to open in August.
            “It was neat to start visualizing how everything is going to occur – where the library will be, where the bus drop offs will be,” Turrubiates said of after a walk through the construction site. “There will be challenges for sure but it’s a new opportunity. It’s a new year with new students, new staff and new parents.”
            Turrubiates currently is principal at Sanger Elementary School and informed his staff after school on Monday that he’ll be transferring. “It was difficult because we are such a family here,” he said. “There were tears all around – including from me.”
            HMS Supt. TJ Parks announced Turrubiates’ appointment on Tuesday, saying he was the right fit for the challenges of opening a new building and hiring an entire staff. Once his replacement is named at Sanger, Turrubiates will help with the conversion at that building, then begin the process of interviewing teaching candidates and furnishing Murray Elementary. The new school, built with funds from a taxpayer approved bond issue last year, is scheduled to be ready for occupancy by June 1.
      Turrubiates first went to work for Hobbs as a Jefferson Elementary School teacher in 1997. He was a Houston Junior High bilingual teacher and member of the Army National Guard Reserve when he was deployed to Washington D.C. for prolonged military service  in 2004. After coming back to Hobbs following  in 2006, he spent three years as a Highland assistant principal before a second deployment to Afghanistan in 2009. Turrubiates was named Sanger principal when he returned to civilian life in 2010.
    He and his wife are the parents of four children, including a first-grade daughter Turrubiates said will likely become a Murray Elementary School second grader in August.
    “On one hand I’m excited about the new opportunities but it’s bittersweet to leave Sanger,” the new Murray principal said.
