His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Mal Crews, continue to live in Woodsboro.
Among the attributes that led to his nomination by other principals in the district were outstanding leadership, service, and dedication to the school district.
“This instructional leader was nominated and selected by his peers, which by itself, is a special tribute,” said Dr. Timothy Jenny, superintendent. “We are proud that this exceptional administrator will be honored by the Region 4 Education Service Center.”
Crews has logged 20 years in public education, 18 at Fort Bend ISD. Prior to accepting the principal’s position at Quail Valley Middle School, he served as an assistant principal at First Colony and Fort Settlement Middle Schools.
He also served as a principal at First Colony Middle School for four years, and as a teacher and coach at Refugio Middle School.
At Quail Valley, Crews spent the past two years establishing the Gifted and Talented Academy.
Crews graduated from Woodsboro High School in the 1980s and earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in curriculum and instruction from Texas A&M University and a Master of Education Degree in administration and supervision from The University of Houston-Victoria.
He and his wife Stacey have two children who attend FBISD schools.
Crews will be honored in June at the Region 4 Education Service Center’s Principal Recognition dinner, recognizing outstanding principals from the surrounding school districts.
