New Staff Interview: Mr. Byrd


1. Where are you coming to Hawkins from? How long have you been teaching?  Sabine ISD and this is my 13th year of teaching Agriculture.

2. Tell us about your family/hobbies/life outside school.  My wife is Mandi Byrd, who is a graduate of Hawkins ISD along with all of her family and they still reside in Hawkins. We have 5 kids between the 2 of us: Kalie Byrd who is junior at Harmony, and Carson, Caden, Calle, and Canyon Minter, who all attend Big Sandy. Our time is consumed in attending their functions and events and outside of that, I do enjoy judging livestock shows, fishing, and hunting when time allows. We own MB7 Livestock…we take pride in raising show stock with our main focus on the wether goat industry. I do enjoy getting to take trips with my family and just being together no matter where that may be.

3. What are your “words to live by”?   You get out of it what you put into it! I believe that goes for everything in life!
4. If you weren’t in education, what would you be doing?  Livestock Marketing
