Cy-Fair ISD chooses namesakes for future schools
The namesakes for three upcoming schools in the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District were recently approved by the the board of trustees.
According to a press release, Elementary School No. 53 will be called Margie Sue Pope Elementary, named after an employee who worked with the district for 18-and-a-half years. Pope previously served as a director of instruction at Cypress Creek High School, principal of both Campbell Middle School and Cypress Falls High School, and assistant superintendent for secondary school administration.
"I can't describe what an honor it is to receive this recognition," Pope said in the release. "The dedicated individuals who served alongside me at the Cypress-Fairbanks ISD campus and administrative levels made it easy to fulfill my various leadership roles."
Margie Sue Pope Elementary, located in the Bridgeland community, is expected to open August 2013.
Elementary School No. 54 will be called Sadie Woodard Elementary School, named after an educator employed with the district for 39 years. Woodard previously served as a teacher at Cy-Fair and Jersey Village high schools, a counselor and assistant principal, director and senior director of guidance and counseling, and assistant superintendent of guidance and counseling.
"It's a pleasure to be honored in this manner as a school namesake," Woodard said in the release. "Cy-Fair is a wonderful district because it has high goals and works hard to reach them. At Woodard Elementary, we are going to have those same high goals, and we are going to reach those goals."
Sadie Woodard Elementary School, located in Canyon Lakes West, is expected to open August 2014.
Middle School No. 18 will be called Dr. David Anthony Middle School, named after a employee who worked with the district for seven years. Anthony previously served as superintendent.
"The two greatest awards and accomplishments of my professional life are when I was hired at Cypress-Fairbanks ISD and now this distinction of being a school namesake," Anthony said in the release. "I consider CFISD to be the holy grail of public school districts in Texas, and it's because of all the great people in it. I'm receiving this award because the people here taught me how to be a better superintendent by the time that I left than I was when I first arrived."
Dr. David Anthony Middle School, located on the district-owned property adjacent to Rennell Elementary, is expected to open August 2014.
