Bryan ISD Trustees approve new Rudder High School Principal

The Bryan ISD Board of Trustees approved Mario Bye as the new principal of Rudder High School at a special meeting on Thursday, June 21.

Bye has 22 years of education experience and most recently served as the principal of Liberty Hill High School.  Prior to that, Bye was an associate principal at Seven Lakes High School in Katy ISD for five years after serving as a grade-level principal for five years at the same school. 

“Mario is a proven leader who is known for fostering a collaborative culture with his staff, parents and students,” said Superintendent Christie Whitbeck. “I know that he will continue the great things happening at Rudder, but will also bring his own brand of excellence and creative ideas to the school with his approachable style of leadership.”

Bye had the opportunity to work with Dr. Whitbeck in Katy ISD.

“I’m excited to work with her again,” said Bye. “I’m also looking forward to being a part of the Bryan community and all that it offers.”

About the Hire:

Bye earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting degree from the University of Houston and a Master’s in Educational Administration from Prairie View A&M University. 

Bye and his wife, Deanna, have four children.
