Lampasas ISD Hires New High School Principal
Lampasas Independent School District hired new High School principal, Robert White. Robert White is entering his twenty-seventh year as an educator. He is coming to Lampasas ISD after serving McGregor ISD as the high school principal for five years and assistant principal for three years prior. Mr. White earned his Masters of Educational Administration from Texas A&M Central Texas (2010) and Bachelor of Science in Education from Howard Payne University (1991). Mr. White graduated from Crane High School in 1986. He began his administrative career as the PEIMS coordinator of Belton High School after seventeen years of coaching and teaching, primarily as head basketball coach and history teacher.
Robert and his wife, Shelley, have been married for twenty-six years. Shelley has been serving McGregor ISD as the elementary music teacher and high school choir director. She is also a graduate of Howard Payne University. The couple has three children. Courtney is a recent graduate of Duke University and is currently employed as a biomedical engineer in Durham, NC. Jaret is a senior at Duke University and is majoring in neuroscience. Addison will be a junior at Lampasas High School. During her time at McGregor High School, Addison has been an active member of cross country, track, drumline, mock trial, robotics, UIL academics, NHS, Student Council, FCA, and Link Crew.
During Mr. White’s tenure as principal of McGregor High School, the campus experienced success in multiple areas. The school was one of twenty-two Texas schools to receive the AP Honor Roll distinction for increased participation and scores. The campus won the district UIL academic championship for the first time in eighteen years. The campus maintained a 99% graduation rate with an attendance rate of 96.8% in 2016. Mr. White led the campus through a $7.5 million renovation project which addressed all aspects of the campus facility as well as a 1:1 deployment of iPads as tools of communication, collaboration, and increased critical thinking for the students. Mr. White’s most cherished MHS accomplishment is the implementation of The Revolution, a community-wide day of service by the student body in honor of a fallen student.
The White’s are very excited about being a part of the Lampasas community and school
system and hope to contribute to its continued success.
