New leaders named at Seguin ISD

Four administrative appointments were unanimously approved during the Seguin ISD school board meeting held April 27.


Jason Cunningham will lead the charge at McQueeney Elementary School as principal. He has worked alongside Meredith Stadler as the assistant principal at the school. Stadler was named Koennecke Elementary principal in March.


“Jason’s experience with the campus and staff will be an added layer of stability with the change in leadership for the 2021-2022 school year. Mr. Cunningham is ready to lead his campus to excellence,” said Dr. Matthew Gutierrez, Seguin ISD superintendent.


The new academic dean at Seguin High School is JoAnn Holliday. Previously she served as the high school’s testing coordinator and most recently, as a data analyst for the district.


“Ms. Holliday is poised to fill a vital role at Seguin High School where her skills will help teachers refine their practices for improved student achievement,” Gutierrez said.


After a year and a half as Seguin High School assistant principal, Ryan Randolph was promoted to associate principal.


“Mr. Randolph has proven to be a systems-oriented leader who focuses on instruction as well as operations. He has been instrumental in conquering the many COVID related challenges we have faced at the high school this school year. I’m confident that he will continue to provide consistent student leadership with an academic focus,” Gutierrez said.


Dr. Chanda Bloch is joining the Learning and Leadership Services team as director of secondary education. A 14-year Seguin ISD staffer, Dr. Bloch has served as a teacher, instructional coach, elementary school principal and associate principal at Seguin High School.


“Dr. Bloch’s vast experience at many levels districtwide is a solid foundation for her to impart leadership and guidance with our middle and high school staffs,” Gutierrez said.
