Robert Dillard seeks to protect Texas’ rural schools

By JAMES GOLSAN

It doesn’t take more than a few minutes of conversation with Robert Dillard, president of the Texas Association of Rural Schools (TARS), to realize the man has a passion for two things: education and small-town life. A self described “country boy,” Dillard’s roots run deep in North Texas oil country. But while his father carved a career in the oil industry from the prairie scrub near the Oklahoma border in Kamay—Dillard proudly highlights that his father began his career as a roustabout and worked his way up to production superintendent for his patch of the oil field—it was a career in education that Dillard found himself drawn to, as early as his own middle school days in Valley View ISD.
