Bill and Cindy Haskett
Both Cindy and Bill Haskett have given a lifetime of exemplary service and dedication to Katy ISD and its community. They have both created deep roots and decades of involvement in the District. The Haskett’s, collectively, have over eight decades of service in public education. Bill began his time with the District as a Katy High School student, graduating in 1961. His career in education spans over 50 years, starting in Spring Branch ISD where he served from 1967 through 1978 as a teacher, counselor and assistant principal. He returned to his old high school in 1978 to become an assistant principal and then in 1981 he continued supporting the Katy Tigers, this time as the school’s principal, which he served for 15 additional years. In 1996, Bill served as the director of community education and special projects, leading that effort until 2004. Additionally, he also contributed as a summer school supervisor, Katy ISD elections administrator, juvenile justice alternative education coordinator and credit by examination coordinator. Bill retired from Katy ISD in 2004 but continued to serve on a part-time basis in Community Education and as the Katy ISD elections administrator until 2016.
Cindy Haskett began her teaching career in Richardson ISD and shortly afterward moved to Houston to teach eighth-grade math and Algebra I for six years in Spring Branch ISD. She then moved to Katy, TX and married Bill in 1979. Cindy taught math at Katy Junior High from 1980 until she retired in 2005, culminating 33 years in public education.
The construction of Bill and Cindy Haskett Junior High is funded through the voter-approved 2017 bond. The school is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2021.
