Having served in various capacities in the Harris County School District since 2001, Lindie Snyder has been named principal of Creekside Intermediate School, which educates the county's fifth and sixth graders.

"As a Harris County High School graduate, I have always felt a sense of pride teaching and mentoring our students over the years," Snyder stated. "Just three short years after graduating, I was in the building of my Alma Mater teaching and then serving as assistant principal and athletic director. I had the pleasure of serving on the planning for Creekside more than 10 years ago, and now I am looking forward with excitement to the days ahead as the principal."

Snyder attended Troy University where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Education, Master of Science in Education, and Education Specialist degrees. She and her husband, and three children reside in Harris County.

Having served as interim principal of Mulberry Creek Elementary School since December 2017, Beverly Weaver has been promoted to be the principal. She has served in the Harris County School District since 2000, as a special education resource teacher for seven years and 10 years as assistant principal.

"My experience in the district has taught me the importance of creating an environment where students can learn, teachers can teach, and where parents feel their children are safe and well cared for. I have a passion to continue the strong leadership of Mulberry Creek, and to support and serve the students and teachers for years to come," Weaver stated. "I am beyond proud to be a part of this community and school district."

The Harris County School District will resume classes for the 2018-2019 academic year August 6, 2018.
