Dr. Jim Thompson
Grapevine-Colleyville ISD Superintendent 1993-2000
The Grapevine-Colleyville ISD community is deeply sadden by the recent passing of Dr. Jim Thompson, former Superintendent of Grapevine-Colleyville ISD.
Dr. Thompson served as GCISD Superintendent from 1993 to 2000. During this time, the district experienced exponential growth, which led to the development of a second high school campus, four new elementary campuses, and a new primary building addition. In addition, the Grapevine-Colleyville Education Foundation began under his tenure.
In 2006, the Grapevine-Colleyville Education Foundation honored Dr. Thompson with the Distinguished Friend Award, and in 2018, he was an honoree in the inaugural class of the GCISD Walk of Honor.
The Grapevine-Colleyville Education Foundation is grateful to Dr. Thompson and his family for the countless years of service to public education. A private, memorial service will be held in November.
In lieu of flowers, the family has designated the Grapevine-Colleyville Education Foundation for memorial contributions.
