Names Proposed for Katy ISD’s New Elementary Schools

(KATY ISD) - During Katy ISD’s December Board meeting, two separate Naming Advisory Committees for Elementary Schools 45 and 46 proposed naming the district’s newest elementary schools after former educators and district leaders who continue contributing to Katy ISD.

David and Terri Youngblood

David and Terri Youngblood were recommended as the namesakes for Elementary 45 and Russell and Cindie Faldyn for Elementary 46.

The Youngblood’s have been dedicated to the field of education for decades and have demonstrated a passion for students, staff and the community of Katy ISD through a collective 77 years of service. Likewise, the Faldyn’s have contributed a combined 66 years of service to support public education. Both couples are still actively involved in the school district and across campuses.

A public forum to provide input regarding the proposed names will be held on Dec. 14 at the Katy ISD Education Support Complex Board Room, 6301 Stadium Lane. Public comment for Elementary 45 will begin at 5 p.m. and public comment for Elementary 46 will begin at 6 p.m. Individuals who wish to speak during the Public Forum may sign up in person at 4:45 p.m. for Elementary 45 and 5:45 p.m. for Elementary 46. No signups will be allowed once the forum begins.

It is anticipated that the Board of Trustees will take final action on the name recommendations at the Jan. 23 board meeting.

Elementary 45 will be located at 25600 Longenbaugh Road while Elementary 46 will be located at 25615 Clay Road, both in the northwest quadrant of Katy ISD.
