Humble ISD Principals of the Year recognized


Ridge Creek Elementary Principal Stephanie Davis and Kingwood High School Principal Dr. Ted Landry have been named Humble ISD's Elementary and Secondary Principals of the Year.


Each year Region 4 recognizes one elementary and one secondary principal from each participating school district. All honorees were honored at the Region 4 Principal Recognition Ceremony on April 4. The principals are selected by their colleagues and are honored for their leadership, service, and dedication.


Stephanie Davis has served as the Ridge Creek Elementary principal since 2016. “I'm honored and humbled to be selected as Principal of the Year,” Davis said. “I have the wonderful opportunity to work with amazing teams at the campus and district level that continuously put the needs of scholars first.”


Davis explains the goal for her campus is to empower the Ridge Creek parents and community members to engage in the school’s learning process. “I am proud of the gains and focus that my campus has made this year in early literacy, meeting our students’ social-emotional needs, and increasing opportunities for scholars to participate in before and after school clubs.”  


Dr. Ted Landry has served as the Kingwood High School principal since 2012. “There is no greater honor than to be recognized by your colleagues,” Landry said. “It is humbling to know that they recognize my dedication to the kids and my ability to lead during a difficult time in our community.”


Landry explains his biggest accomplishment in his career so far has been keeping Kingwood High School together in the wake of Harvey.

“I cannot say that I did it alone, and I am grateful for all the sacrifices made by both the district as a whole, the faculty and staff, and the community of parents and students,” Landry said. “Kingwood High School is a very special place. It is not just a building; it is a community of individuals who came together with mutual trust and collaboration in a time of turmoil and pulled off something amazing! I am honored to have been a part of it!”
