The band, comprised of music directors from across the District, played in the background as Katy ISD Board members, Superintendent Alton Frailey, staff and community members celebrated the groundbreaking of the new Robert and Felice Bryant Elementary School.
Set to open in fall 2017 in the Young Ranch Subdivision, this school is one of new six campuses included in the 2014 voter-approved bond program. Earlier this year, the Board unanimously voted to name Elementary School No. 40 after Robert and Felice Bryant in honor of their dedication to the students and the schools.
Robert began his career in Katy ISD in 1983 as director of bands and fine arts department chair for Katy High School before being promoted to executive director of fine arts for Katy ISD in 2000. During his tenure he was named the 2006 Texas Tech University Distinguished Educator, the 2007-2008 Texas Musical Administrator of the Year, and the recipient of the 2015 Jacob L. and Sophia Meyer Farb School Bell Award for Lifetime Achievement in Music Education, among other awards.
Felice devoted 24 years teaching kindergarten and first grade students in Katy ISD, and was named the Katy Elementary Teacher of the Year in 1997. She also served as a Keep Encouraging Youth toward Success (KEYS) Mentor and continues to impact students after her retirement through tutoring and mentorship.
