Staff Picture

My name is Stacy LaBruyere and I am the College & Career Coordinator at Montgomery High School. I graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelors degree.  I earned my masters degree at Sam Houston State University. I also have my Principal Certification, as well. I have been married for 22 years and have two boys. My oldest son is a MHS Class of 2014 graduate and is currently working on a construction science degree at Texas A&M. My youngest son is OFFICIALLY a SENIOR at MHS.

I look forward to working with students to help find the best pathway to success for life after high school. Parents, counselors, students, and teachers all play an integral role in preparing our students to be ready for college, the workforce, or military. I am here to assist with the exploration of colleges and career opportunities, applying for admissions, and scholarship opportunities. It is an honor to collaborate with faculty and staff, students, parents, and our school community to plan, implement, and evaluate a comprehensive college & career program.


It’s going to be an exciting year!

Montgomery High School welcomes college representatives to visit our school and interact with students and counseling staff.

MHS schedules college rep visits during September, October and November and March, April, and May. Visits are held in the College and Career Center in one-half hour increments between 7:45 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Reps who are interested in visiting with our students should make an appointment by calling Stacy LaBruyere at 936-276-3093.

Visits are posted on the CCC Calendar and students are required to register in advance.
