Conroe ISD’s new intermediate school was officially named during the Sept. 19 school board meeting after former educator Katherine Johnson Clark. The new school in the Oak Ridge High School feeder zone is set to open in August 2018.
Clark, who retired from CISD after a 26-year career, still serves the district as a part-time substitute teacher.
Two other names included in the board’s discussion were Herbert Lamp, a former educator and Conroe High School graduate, and Annette Gordon-Reed, a Pulitzer Prize winner and Conroe High School graduate.
“Here’s the good news: We have three schools to name in the next couple of years,” CISD Superintendent Don Stockton said.
In addition to Clark Intermediate School, two schools are set to open in the Conroe High School feeder zone in the next few years, Stockton said.
Board President Melanie Bush encouraged those who nominated Lamp and Gordon-Reed to nominate them again when other new schools will be named in the Conroe High School feeder zone.
