Achieve Today. Excel Tomorrow. 2016 - 2021 Strategic Plan

Marshall and Cloye Sherrod

Sherrod Elementary is named after Marshal and Cloye Sherrod who retired after 28 years with the Arlington schools.

The Sherrods came to Arlington in 1949 after graduating from Texas Christian University. Mr. Sherrod served at Kooken Elementary for seven years, then became principal of Balnton Elementary when it opened in 1956.

Mrs. Sherrod began working in the Arlington schools in 1952 as a secretary to James W. Martin, then principal of Arlington High School. She soon began teaching a class in typing and beginning shorthand. She later asked Martin if she could teach shorthand II and get accredited, which she did. Later she got permission for the girls to take a week off form their classes to work, free of charge, in local businesses, a forerunner of today’s career education courses.  

From Arlington High School, Mrs. Sherrod moved to Sam Houston High School when it opened to serve as dean of girls for seven years. She took her last job as Career Vocational Academic Education coordinator in 1972.
