Meet the Webbs - Making lasting memories in Sheldon
Eddie and Olivia Webb originally met at what was then C.E. King Junior High. Olivia was in the eighth grade and Eddie was in the seventh. They would see each other at school and around in the community, but Eddie was more into sports and kept with his football friends and Olivia was more into fine arts and science. Olivia would go on and graduate from C.E. King High School in 1985 and Eddie in 1986. After graduation, Eddie joined the military and Olivia went to college and became a chemist. Years later they reconnected through social media, developed a friendship and eventually got married. Olivia Webb is now a science teacher for the STEM program at King High School. Eddie is a proud member of the military and served as a pilot for the US Army.
Eddie and Olivia are passionate about Sheldon ISD and want to share the traditions that they grew up with to the next generation. Olivia's daughter, Elisa, is an Early College High School junior set to graduate next year with a high school diploma and associates degree in communication from San Jacinto College. They have been a part of the Sheldon community for much of their lives. They are at every football game to watch Elisa on the field with the Pantherettes and to cheer on our Panthers to victory. The Webbs are a strong example of Sheldon ISD's motto, "Every Child, Every Day."
