Comal Independent School District recently named Matthew DeLoach to become as principal of Davenport High School. DeLoach, currently Canyon Middle School’s principal, assumes his new position in August, ahead of Davenport’s opening for the 2020-21 school year.
DeLoach served three years as principal at Canyon Middle School, as academic dean and assistant principal at Canyon Lake High School from 2014-16, and joined the district in 2013 as principal at Comal Discipline Center. He has a bachelor’s degree in social studies education and master’s degree in secondary education administration from The Citadel.
Davenport High School, currently under construction at 23555 Farm-to-Market Road 3009 in Garden Ridge, is scheduled to open in August 2020.
“I am confident he will do a great job in recruiting talent, as well as preparing and leading our newest campus as he has done an excellent job leading Canyon Middle these past three years,” said Andrew Kim, Comal ISD superintendent.
Ernie Reynolds, Canyon High School’s assistant principal for the past three years, will succeed DeLoach as Canyon Middle School principal beginning this August. Reynolds has 15 years in education and has been with the district since 2016. He has a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from Angelo State University, and a master’s in education administration from Texas A&M University-Commerce.
