Dr. Quraishi is extremely passionate about the Herricks students because she
was one. She has been a Herricks resident for most of her life and graduated in
1995 from Herricks High School top of her class (valedictorian). She is the
mother of three amazing children who all attend Herricks schools and she is deeply
committed to the children, parents, and schools in Herricks.

She is highly motivated and has proven herself to be a strong community
supporter with her involvement in the Health and Safety Committee during the
pandemic, lead coach for the Girls on the Run in 2019/2020 and head couch for

and is currently on the executive board of Denton and Herricks Middle School.

As a Herricks resident for over 25 years, I am extremely confident Dr. Shaheda
Quraishi would provide us with strong leadership and the best possible education
for our students. She is strongly committed to continue the tradition of
excellence in Herricks.
