will Hobbs Assistant Superintendent Will Hawkins (shown holding plaque) was named New Mexico School Personnel Director of the year during Friday’s New Mexico Coalition of Educational Leaders Association (NMCELA) in Albuquerque.
   Hawkins took over Hobbs Municipal School’s human resources department four years ago – at a time when the district was experiencing skyrocketing enrollment and teacher shortages. He is responsible for all aspects of employee relations and training including the recruiting, screening and interviewing of new teachers.
   “Mr. Hawkins’ job escalated in significance due to an 18 percent growth in student enrollment over the past eight years,” HMS Supt. TJ Parks said.  “He continues to research new and innovative methods of recruitment while spending his time traveling across the country to provide our students a highly qualified staff member for every classroom.”
   “It’s true that I’ve logged a lot of miles,” Hawkins said, “but I’m a people person and I enjoy bragging about Hobbs. I’m happy to be an ambassador for our school district.”
   A former Brownfield principal, Hawkins spent the past year serving as president of the New Mexico Public School Personnel Association. During that time he has also helped the district and state keep current with changing New Mexico teacher licensure requirements.
   Back in Hobbs, Hawkins played a significant role in developing a University of the Southwest paraprofessional partnership which allows the district’s teaching assistants to continue to work in the classroom while finishing requirements for their bachelor’s degree.
   Hawkins was hired as an assistant superintendent for secondary education in 2011 and promoted to the personnel position in 2013.
