Two new hires will join Fort Bend ISD ahead of the upcoming 2022-23 school year, one as a campus administrator and the other at the district level.

During its July 25 meeting, the board of trustees appointed Brian Shillingburg as principal of Clements High School, while appointing Tiffany Unruh as the district’s new director of strategic planning, according to a July 26 news release.

Shillingburg, with experience serving as principal of James Bowie Middle School, comes to the high school principal position with two decades of experience in education.

Shillingburg also comes to the role with a master’s degree in education administration from Sam Houston State University and a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education from the University of Mary Hardin Baylor.

“As the future principal at Clements, I will help develop a thriving community of learners where every student can own their journey to graduation,” Shillingburg said in the release. “Our campus will pursue innovation, encourage creativity, and capitalize on our school’s collective greatness to drive student ownership, and our collaborative spirit will be a biproduct of a flourishing school community that constantly seeks new ways to challenge their students.”

Unruh, meanwhile, comes to her position after serving as FBISD’s coordinator of strategic transformation. She has worked as an educator in Alvin and Clear Creek ISDs and as a professional learning specialist in FBISD.
