    Campus Alum Spotlights

    A fascinating fact about Fort Bend ISD is that several alumni have returned to the district to work professionally, while others have made a name for themselves in other fields! On this webpage, we feature alumni success stories submitted by members of FBISD’s Student Leadership Cohort. The high school students have interviewed alumni, gathered photos and details about their lives to share with us. We appreciate their contributions to our Campus Alum Spotlights!

    B Cross MSH Alum

    BRANDI CROSS – Health Teacher and Coach Brandi Cross is a Marshall High School alum who has made history as a student athlete and as an employee. She says, "My experiences while attending Marshall were nothing short of exemplary. Now that I am an employee at Marshall, I try to give student athletes what was poured into me, which is not always easy. As we move in this world, things evolve and change.” One of her favorite memories as a student at Marshall was going to state track competition and making history as the first Marshall girls’ team to do so shortly after the school's opening. 


    DENA GARCIA – A graduate of Kempner High School’s Class of ’94, Mrs. Dena Garcia has returned to the district as an Assessment Coordinator and Coach of the Lady Tigers Junior Varsity Volleyball Team at Travis High School. The 2013 Teacher of the Year winner says she returned 15 years ago because she was inspired by her high school teachers to pursue the profession and wanted her family to stay in Fort Bend ISD. Her favorite memory as a Kempner Cougar was her volleyball team’s undefeated season district win during her senior year!
