Katy ISD has tapped Ronnie Edwards as the district’s new assistant superintendent for school leadership and support. Edwards has been principal of Mayde Creek High School for the past five years.

“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, in a statement from the district. “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."

Edwards holds a bachelor's degree in physical education with a minor in English from Tarleton State University. He also has his master's of education in administration and supervision from the University of Houston-Victoria. He will be replacing Freda Creech, who will retire this summer.
