Meet the MHS Administration

Brandi Hendrix, MHS Principal


I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself.  I graduated from Texas A&M in 1995, with a major in English and a minor in Education.  I worked in several districts, but found my place in Montgomery, when my husband and I moved our family here.  I have spent the last 11 years working as a teacher, curriculum specialist, director of testing and special programs, and finally, as an administrator.

While I have enjoyed every experience that I have had in Montgomery, being the Associate Principal of Curriculum and Instruction at Montgomery High School for five years allowed me to build the foundation of MHS' commitment to rigorous and relevant curriculum.  It was the perfect position to combine my passion for education with my love for students. Each and every day, I had the chance to work with teachers, administrators, parents, and students to make Montgomery High School the best that it can be.  I am honored to be the Principal of Montgomery High School and promise to continue building a school culture that benefits all of our student body.

Contact Mrs. Hendrix or her secretary, Toni Luedke at 936-276-3011 for answers to your general questions the academic calendar, or to schedule an appointment with Mrs. Hendrix.  For other concerns, please reference the administrator's duties below.
