Fort Bend ISD has appointed Sugar Land Middle School principal Keith Fickel to the same role at the district’s new high school, Almeta Crawford High School, a Wednesday news release from the district said.
Crawford, located on the southeast side of the district on FM 521, is scheduled to open in fall of 2022. It will be the 12th high school in FBISD.
“It is a tremendous honor to be named as the first principal for Almeta Crawford High School,” Fickel said. “I look forward to collaborating with the community to develop a shared vision that ensures Crawford High School serves its stakeholders in a world-class way.”
Fickel has been in FBISD for 25 years, according to the district, and has been the principal at Sugar Land Middle School for the last five years.
“Keith is a dedicated leader in FBISD whose many years of experience will be instrumental in planning for Crawford High School’s opening,” Superintendent Charles Dupre said. “He knows how to build a strong culture and is well-prepared to assemble a great faculty and staff who will work with the students, parents and community to create a solid foundation for the long-term success of FBISD’s new high school.”
