LAMAR CISD NAMES HEATHER R. WILLIAMS PRINCIPAL OF NEW LINDSEY ELEMENTARY

Lamar CISD has named Heather R. Williams principal of the district’s newest elementary school, Kathleen Joerger Lindsey Elementary. Set to open in August, the 92,324-square-foot building is located at 2431 Joan Collier Trace Road in Firethorne. It marks Lamar CISD’s first school in Firethorne, its 24th elementary district-wide and its first school with a Katy address.

“This is my first time to open a new school and it’s an honor. It’s something you think about when you become a principal,” said Williams, who celebrates her 20th year in education this year. “It’s exciting because this is a growing community.”

Lamar CISD represents a “coming home” for Williams, who lives in Richmond and worked for the district from 2002-2008. Williams joined Katy ISD in 2008 as assistant principal of Odessa Kilpatrick Elementary from 2008-12, before being promoted to principal of Stan C. Stanley Elementary in Katy ISD, where she has been at the helm for the past five years (2012-17.)

Williams earned her B.S. degree in interdisciplinary studies, elementary education from Stephen F. Austin State University in May 1997 and her master of education in administration and supervision from University of Houston-Victoria in 2008.
