Katy ISD Board Approves Name for Junior High #18

(KATY ISD) – The Katy Independent School District Board of Trustees approved the naming of Junior High #18 during their December Regular Board meeting. The campus will officially be named Nelson Junior High.

Members of the Nelson family.

The Nelson family history spans across five generations in the Katy area. Over that time, family members have graduated from Katy ISD, served on the Board of Trustees and have been deeply involved in various district programs such as FFA.

Their connection to the land that Nelson Junior High is being built on today is unique, having purchased the land generations ago from a Katy ISD schoolteacher. The school will open in fall 2024.

"Having played a pivotal role in shaping the community that we know today, the Nelson family’s legacy is deeply entwined with the history of Katy.  Five generations of the Nelson family have resided in Katy — contributing to its economic and social development," said Victor Perez, Katy ISD Board President. “I look forward to seeing all of the great work and accomplishments that will be achieved by the Nelson school community when the school opens next fall.”
