IDEA’s Newest Principals Revealed

The room was filled with anticipation on Monday, November 5, during IDEA’s Halftime event in preparation for the announcement of our newest principals. Once the names and schools were revealed, attendees cheered and applauded the eight audacious leaders who have dedicated their careers to education and will lead IDEA students on their journeys to and through college.

These eight outstanding individuals will become principals of IDEA schools during the 2019-20 school year. They will serve as campus principals in our Austin, Tarrant County, El Paso and the Lower Valley regions—continuing our mission of college for all children.
