Bryan ISD taps 20-year veteran educator as new Rudder High School principal
Rachel Layton will be the next principal at Rudder High School.
The Bryan ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously Monday to appoint the 20-year veteran educator to the top spot at the high school. Layton has been with BISD all 20 years of her career.
Most recently, she was the principal of SFA Middle School. Layton was one of Rudder High School's original teachers when the school opened in 2007.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to return to Rudder High School. I look forward to continuing the tradition of excellence that has been established at Rudder,” Layton said. “I also want to extend my deepest thanks to the staff and students of SFA Middle School. I am a better person and educator due to the relationships I formed at SFA. I am honored to be able to work with the exceptional Ranger staff in order to positively impact the Rudder students.”
Superintendent Dr. Christie Whitbeck is excited about the impact Layton will have at Rudder.
“Rachel Layton is Rudder High School! She was there from the beginning as a teacher, coach, Assistant Principal, and Associate Principal before serving as SFA Middle School principal these last three years,’ Whitbeck said. “I am very proud of her leadership and I think she will be a perfect fit to take this campus to the next level.”
