A new principal is slated to take the helm at Whitehouse High School.
Jonathan Campbell, currently assistant principal at Kingwood High School in Humble ISD, has been chosen as the Whitehouse High School principal, Whitehouse ISD Superintendent Daniel DuPree confirmed.
Before becoming assistant principal at Kingwood High School, Campbell served as assistant principal at Atascocita High School in Humble ISD, according to the Whitehouse ISD website.
Campbell has a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree from Stephen F. Austin State University, according to the website, and is now working on his doctorate at the University of Houston. He and his wife have two children.
Campbell, 39, is set to start in Whitehouse on Jan. 6, and current Whitehouse High School Principal Duane Barber will step into his new position as assistant superintendent in Whitehouse, DuPree said.
“I am very excited about Mr. Campbell coming to WHS after the holidays,” DuPree said in a prepared statement. “He will be a tremendous instructional leader who will be able to work with the students, faculty, staff and community in a way that will ensure that the success of the high school will continue to be of the highest priority.
“We appreciate all that Mr. Barber has done during his time at WHS and are looking forward to him working with us in his new capacity as soon as this transition takes place.”
DuPree said Campbell was able to visit Whitehouse on Thursday and met many faculty and staff members. He said Campbell also got to meet a lot of students.
“It was a great day at Whitehouse High School,” DuPree said.
Campbell said, “It was very refreshing. I can definitely tell there are some fantastic things” occurring.
“I enjoy what they’ve already done and can’t wait to be a part of the future,” he added.
