Fort Bend ISD is proud to announce the names of its 2014 Principals of the Year. Deidra Lyons-Lewis, principal at Hodges Bend Middle School (HBMS) is the Secondary Principal of the Year; and Eugene Dupont, principal at Colony Meadows Elementary School (CME) is the Elementary Principal of the Year. They were chosen by their peers based on their outstanding leadership, service and dedication to students, faculty and staff.
“I am honored to be named the FBISD Secondary Principal of the Year,” said Deidra Lyons-Lewis, “although, I am but a reflection of the talented people in the District. Throughout my years in FBISD, I have been taught, groomed and challenged by the best to always do what is best for our children and community. I am grateful for the guidance and support of the FBISD community.”
Lyons-Lewis, who comes from a family of educators, is a 19-year veteran in education and has led faculty and staff at HBMS for the past two years. While in Fort Bend ISD, she has held the positions as associate principal, assistant principal, guidance counselor, Special Education teacher, Director of Staffing and Secondary Staffing Coordinator – all of which have prepared her for making executive decisions to ensure that students receive the positive educational experience that they deserve.
Dupont learned how rewarding a career in education could be from his mother, who was a teacher. He has worked in education for 35 years, devoting 27 of those to FBISD. He has served as a principal, assistant principal and teacher at five FBISD schools. He says his greatest success as a principal has been seeing the accomplishments that students make each and every day on campus. He feels blessed to be a part of the FBISD family and honored by his peers.
“To be named as Elementary Principal of the Year is a wonderful honor,” said Dupont. “This distinction is even more important to me because it is a reflection of all Elementary Principals in our outstanding District. To be honored by your peers is a very humbling experience.”
