After a competitive and extensive interview process, the Montgomery ISD Board of Trustees has approved the selection of Tim Williams, current Principal at Oak Hills JH, as the next Principal of Lake Creek HS. Williams will lead Lake Creek HS following the retirements of Phil Eaton and Acting Principal Duane McFadden.

“Mr. Williams emerged from an impressive list of incredibly talented, qualified candidates for this role,” Superintendent Dr. Heath Morrison said. “His experience in Montgomery and knowledge of the community, ability to authentically connect with students, staff members and families and his proven strong leadership make him the ideal person for this role.”

Williams has been in Montgomery ISD since 2013, having served as Assistant Principal at both Montgomery Middle School and Montgomery Junior High prior to being selected as Principal of Montgomery Middle School and then opening Oak Hills JH as principal in 2017. During his tenure in Montgomery ISD, Williams has been recognized as Assistant Principal of the Year in 2014 by both the district and Region 6.

“The opportunity and trust the district gave me to open Oak Hills was a gift,” Williams said. “And together we have created an amazing campus where students and teachers can enjoy coming to school and can thrive.”

Williams is familiar with many Lake Creek HS students and their families from their time at Oak Hills JH and looks forward to growing those relationships deeper while working with the staff at Lake Creek HS.

“Tim’s foundation of strong relationships speaks volumes to making this transition a very smooth one for the entire Lion family,” Morrison said. “We’re excited for the next chapter and what lies ahead for the Lions under Mr. Williams’ leadership.”

Williams and his wife Jamie, a former junior high math teacher and counselor, have two daughters and one son. Jalynn is 14 and attends Oak Hills JH, Kennedy is seven and attends Keenan ES and baby Cooper is 9 months old and loves his sisters and smiling.

Williams received a Bachelor’s degree from Sam Houston State University in 2003 and his Master’s Degree in Education from Lamar University in 2010. Before joining Team Montgomery, Williams served as a teacher, coach and administrator in Sheldon ISD from 2003-2013. While in Sheldon ISD, he received the Rookie of the Year Award for the 2003-2004 school year as an 8th grade US History teacher and the Teacher of the Year Award in 2005. He coached JV and Varsity Football and Baseball at his alma mater, C.E. King High School.

“I could go on forever about what leading Oak Hills JH and working with that amazing staff has meant to me,” Williams said. “And then I could go on and on again about what the opportunity ahead of me means, as well. I’m humbled and thankful, and so very excited to lead the Lake Creek family.”
