Katy ISD Announces New Assistant Superintendent for School Leadership and SupportKaty ISD Announces New Assistant Superintendent for School Leadership and Support<div class="ExternalClassF49EB852483C42C59C595BA44BD9DEDF"><p><span style="text-align:justify;">Today Katy Independent School District Superintendent Ken Gregorski appointed Ronnie Edwards as the District's new Assistant Superintendent for School Leadership and Support.  Prior to accepting this new role, Edwards was the principal of Mayde Creek High School, a position he has held for the past five years.  He will be replacing Dr. Freda Creech who is pl</span><span style="text-align:justify;">anning for retirement this summer.</span><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">“It is an honor for me to be part of a thriving school district where our goal is to ensure every student excels in a supportive academic environment, from their first day of school up to the last day of their senior year," said Ronnie Edwards, Assistant Superintendent for School Leadership and Support.  “As a former principal, I can relate with the struggles and strengths of campus leaders.  I look forward to working with them and staff from across the district to ensure this growing school district continues providing an A+ education," added Edwards.<br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">Edwards began his career in education as an English teacher and coach at Santa Fe Independent School District in 1991.  A year later, he accepted a head coaching position in Van Vleck Independent School District.  Known for his passion in the classroom as well as in athletics, in 1994, Edwards decided to move closer to his hometown where he began coaching and teaching in Abilene Independent School District.  But a few years later, South Texas was calling him back, this time to join Brazosport ISD as head basketball coach and English teacher.  It wasn't until 1999 that Edwards joined the Katy ISD family after accepting a head basketball and physical education (PE) teacher position at Katy High School.  Five years later, he accepted a position at Fort Bend Independent School District at Kempner High School as a head coach and English teacher.  In 2009, Edwards moved into administration at Fort Bend ISD at Clements High School as an Assistant Principal.  He remained there until 2011.  That year, he accepted the Associate Principal position at William B. Travis High School in Fort Bend ISD.  In 2013, he was named Principal at John Foster Dulles High School.  Yet throughout his educational career, Katy ISD always held a special place in his heart.  In 2016, Edwards returned to Katy ISD as Principal of Mayde Creek High School, a position he has held until today when he was appointed into his new role with the district leadership team.  <br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">​Edwards holds a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education with a minor in English from Tarleton State University and a Master of Education in Administration and Supervision from the University of Houston – Victoria.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/PublishingImages/061421_Ronnie%20Edwards.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:400px;height:533px;" /><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><em>Ronnie Edwards</em><br><em> Assistant Superintendent for School Leadership and Support</em><br></p></div>
