Travis ISD Superintendent Brad Lancaster announced via press release Jan. 11.

Prehn has more than 15 years of experience in public education serving as a teacher, assistant principal and principal in the Cypress-Fairbanks, Leander and Lake Travis school districts. She joined LTISD in 2015 as assistant principal at Serene Hills Elementary School. A year later, Prehn was promoted to serve as principal of West Cypress Hills Elementary School, a position she has held since 2016, the release said.

Prehn will officially begin her tenure as principal of Bee Cave Middle School on Jan. 22. As she begins her transition and prepares for the opening of the new middle school in August, Prehn will be working temporarily from the LTISD Administration Building, the release said. In her absence, Lancaster has appointed Lester Wolff to serve as interim principal at West Cypress Hills Elementary School for the remainder of the school year. Most recently, Mr. Wolff served as interim assistant principal at Hudson Bend Middle School.

Lancaster and senior staff will work with the Human Resources Department to post the West Cypress Hills principal position in March, the release said.

Located off Hwy. 71 and Vail Divide, LTISD’s $76.2 million third middle school will accommodate 1,200 students in two-story, grade-level houses. The campus is about 60 percent complete and scheduled to open in August.
