Hays CISD announced Tuesday that Brett Miksch has been hired to be the principal of Johnson High School, which will open in August for the 2019-20 school year.

Miksch most recently worked as a principal in Barbers Hill ISD near Houston, according to the district. Before that he was at Sweeny ISD, also near Houston, and from 2009-18 served at different times as the high school principal, executive director of administrative services and athletics, assistant principal, head coach of boys basketball, and as a physics teacher and speech teacher.

He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a bachelor's of science in science and kinesiology before receiving a master's degree in education from Lamar University in Beaumont.

According to the release from the district, Miksch was a student manager for the Longhorns at UT in 2005, when the team won the national championship.

At a meeting last night the Hays CISD board of trustees confirmed that they had hired a principal for the new high school, but the announcement was saved until Miksch was able to inform his colleagues.
