First Colony Middle School Assistant Principal Named December Impact Award Recipient

(FORT BEND ISD) – First Colony Middle School Assistant Principal Mike Bennett was awarded Fort Bend ISD’s December Impact award for the impact he makes in the lives of his students, staff and community.

FCMS Principal Courtney Muceus nominated Bennett because he “consistently puts others’ needs before his own.”

“He is dedicated to supporting everyone no matter their need and whether it falls under his job description or not,” Muceus said. “Mr. Bennett is always visible on our campus and responsive to the needs of the staff and students.”

Bennett takes time to learn each student’s name and interests so he can build strong relationships with them.

“The connections Mr. Bennett makes with his students, particularly students who may have difficult problems going on in their lives outside of school, is remarkable,” she said.

For example, Bennett accompanied a student to the emergency room and remained until parents arrived. He arranged consistent transportation for a student who frequently missed school and he worked with the district’s Social Emotional Learning and Comprehensive Health Department to set up one-on-one counseling for a student in need of mental health support.

He supports teachers, often collaborating with district-level departments to obtain resources they need for their classrooms. And he also a large advocate for campus’ custodial and cafeteria staff on a regular basis.

Bennett has served FBISD his entire career. He was a teacher and coach at Sugar Land and Fort Settlement middle schools before becoming an assistant principal at FCMS.

Bennett is a graduate of FBISD, having attended Sugar Mill Elementary, Sugar Land Middle School and Kempner High School - the same path of schools his children currently attend.
