Three new principals have been named for Mary Helen Berlanga and Woodlawn elementary schools and Mary Carroll High School.
Corpus Christi ISD announced Wednesday Christa Rasche, Melissa Clearman and Robert Arredondo will lead their respective campuses starting the 2021-22 school year.
Rasche previously served as an assistant principal at Sterling B. Martin Middle School. Now on her way to Woodlawn Elementary, she has experience with CCISD, Flour Bluff ISD and the Education Service Center, Region 2.
Before transferring to Berlanga Elementary, Clearman had been an assistant principal at Dorothy Adkins Middle School and, most recently, Foy H. Moody High School.
Arredondo is replacing principal Jamie Meek of Carroll High School, who is relocating out of the area.
For the past four years, he has served as principal of Joseph T. Dawson Elementary School. Arredondo’s previous positions include being an administrator for Carroll and Veterans Memorial high schools, as well as teaching and coaching track and cross country at Carroll and Moody high schools.
“His experience as an administrator, his energy, and his collaborative leadership style will be assets as he leads the Carroll community on a daily basis and helps the Tigers prepare to move to their new campus in August 2022,” superintendent Roland Hernandez said.
The 2021-22 school year will begin Aug. 10 and will return with face-to-face learning.
