    Students choose mascot, colors for new Northwest high school

    By Erika Pedroza | Published Wednesday, April 30, 2014

    {{{*}}}The blue and green Eaton Eagles will soar against their opponents come 2015.

    At the recommendation of a committee of students and parents, the mascot of Northwest ISD’s third comprehensive high school, V.R. Eaton High School, will be the Eagles and the color scheme blue and green.

    A committee of 16 students from each of the three middle schools that will feed into the high school – Tidwell, Wilson and Chisholm Trail middle schools – compiled a list of 16 mascots and color schemes, which was narrowed to two by a panel of parents.

    All sixth, seventh and eighth graders at the three middle schools voted on the two options, and the prevailing recommendation was presented to the board at its meeting Monday.

    “One of the kids said, ‘We want to win. And not just in athletics. But we want a school that is known to be a winner in academics, in athletics, how they embrace their peers, how they’re welcoming,’” said Damon Edwards, executive director of secondary education, who led the committees. ” … These choices will help establish the groundwork for that rich tradition and culture for students at Eaton High School.”

    V.R. Eaton

    The school, which is named after the father of Messenger owner and publisher Roy Eaton, is slated to open in August 2015 with freshmen and sophomores only.

    Current enrollment projections indicate the school will open with approximately 1,000 students. Another grade level will be added each year until the campus has ninth through 12th grades in the 2017-18 school year.

    PARKER NAMED DAMON’S SUCCESSOR

    The report on the Eaton High School colors and mascot was Edwards’ last as an employee of NISD.

    He will join the Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City ISD, northeast of San Antonio, as assistant superintendent of student and academic services. The board named Linda Parker, a Wise County resident, his successor.

    Linda Parker

    “Dr. Parker is an experienced educator with proven leadership skills in Northwest ISD,” Dr. Karen Rue said. “She has shown tremendous commitment to the district’s vision and core beliefs, and I’m confident she will excel in this role.”

    Parker brings 28 years’ experience in education, including 17 years in the classroom and 11 in administration.

    She is currently principal at NISD’s Byron Nelson High School, where she has led the campus since its opening in 2009.

    She has served the students and staff of Northwest ISD since 2001. Prior to coming to NISD, Parker worked in Boyd ISD and O’Donnell ISD.

    “I am excited to serve the community, staff and students in this new position,” Dr. Parker said. “I am looking forward to continuing to bring positivity and leadership to an organization that is focused on student success and achievement.”

    She earned her doctorate in education at Nova Southeastern University. She holds a master’s degree in education from Texas Woman’s University and a bachelor of science degree from Texas Tech University.

    She was selected as a member of the 2013-2014 Principals’ Visioning Institute, where she trains and works with fellow principals across Texas who are focused on the transformation of education.

    She is an adjunct professor for Dallas Baptist University and has presented across the state at various conferences such as the Texas Association of High School Principals and the Conference for Advancement of Mathematics Teaching. She serves on the board of directors for the Texas Association of School Principals.

    Parker will finish the school year as principal at Byron Nelson High School. A new principal will be named before the end of the current school year.

    I look forward to working with you!
