    Ronald Thornton Middle School is named for legendary Fort Bend ISD band leader Ronald Thornton. Thornton served as band director and Fine Arts Department Chair at Willowridge High School from 1988 until his passing in December 2009. Under his leadership, the WHS band excelled in numerous competitions and were invited to participate in the Rose Bowl and Orange Bowl. Those who nominated Thornton described him as an exemplar of honor, pride, discipline and excellence. These words hung on a banner in his band hall as he taught his students to play with their heart and soul.
