A new school year in the Clear Creek Independent School District started Aug. 21 and some students were welcomed back by new leaders at their campuses.
David Williams, the longtime principal of Seabrook Intermediate School in Clear Creek ISD, announced his retirement after more than two decades at the school. In June, the district named Sharon Lopez as the school’s new principal.
Lopez brings more than 11 years of leadership experience to Seabrook with serving previously as an assistant principal of Pearland High School for three years and an assistant and associate principal at Clear Brook High School for the past eight years.
“Learning is my passion, and I anticipate sharing in that passion with the Seabrook Intermediate School community as we learn and grow together,” Lopez said. “I am truly honored and excited to begin serving the Seabrook community and collaborating to continue the Seabrook success.”
Williams was instrumental in developing the Science Magnet Program at Seabrook Intermediate School in 1993, which has since provided students with a science curriculum and additional science electives and opportunities. Lopez looks forward to continuing this legacy through building on this enhanced curriculum while also teaching students to be lifelong learners, innovative problem-solvers and responsible citizens, she said.
Sheridan Henley, the dean of instruction at Clear Brook High School, will take over for Lopez as the school’s new associate principal.
