Katy ISD Superintendent Ken Gregorski has named new principals for Memorial Parkway Elementary School and Mayde Creek High School, according to a press release from the district.

Gregorski appointed Norma Veguilla-Martinez as the new principal of Memorial Parkway Elementary School and Gina Cobb as the new principal of Mayde Creek High School. Both administrators will begin their roles this summer, the release said.

Martinez began her educational career as an elementary teacher in 2008 in Edinburg Consolidated ISD, the release said. She joined KISD in 2013 as a third-grade teacher at Exley Elementary School. In 2016 she became an interventionist at Morton Ranch Elementary School. In 2017, she transitioned into administration as an assistant principal at Fielder Elementary School and most recently she held the same role at Beckendorff Junior High School.

Martinez holds a bachelor's degree in psychology from Texas A&M University and a master's degree in educational management and instructional technology from the University of Houston at Clear Lake, the release said. She is pursuing a doctoral degree in educational leadership from UHCL.

“I am honored to lead a school rich in family, community and education,” Martinez said in the release. “I cannot wait to meet my new Panther family at Memorial Parkway Elementary, and I look forward to learning together.”

Cobb has been a part of the KISD family since 1999 when she began her career in education, the release said. From 1999 to 2006, she taught and coached at Katy Junior High, Cinco Ranch High, Morton Ranch Junior High and Morton Ranch High schools. In 2006, she began her administrative career and has held several administrative titles from 2006 to 2012 at Morton Ranch High School including a grade level assistant principal, administrative assistant principal, student support assistant principal and associate principal.

From 2013 until recently, Cobb served as the principal for West Memorial Junior High School, the release said. Cobb holds a bachelor's degree in applied learning and development from the University of Texas at Austin and a master's degree in educational leadership from Prairie View A&M.

“I’m excited to join the MCHS Rams family to continue the academic excellence and culture they have passionately established, as well as the rich traditions which have made this high school what it is today,” Cobb said in the release. “I look forward to meeting everyone very soon to collaborate in our mission to be 'Mayde to Believe, Lead and Achieve.'”
