Lion's Mane (Parent Edition)

Special Note to the Lion Nation

Thank You

Dear Lion Nation,

It has has been an incredible honor and privilege to serve as the principal of THE McKinney High School. An unexpected opportunity has presented itself and has altered my professional plans in MISD. It is bittersweet for me to announce that I will be serving as the next principal of Lake Travis High School in Austin, Texas. I will officially assume my new role on July 1, so I look forward to ending the year successfully by continuing the good that started this year. My time here was brief, but memorable because of the wonderful parents, students, and teachers who make up McKinney High School.

I leave MHS knowing it made me better professionally. During my time in MISD, and at MHS, I have formed lasting bonds with many of you and will miss you all deeply. Although I am leaving, I know that MHS will continue to build on the rich legacy of its past, while focusing on preparing our students for the future. McKinney High School will always hold a special place in my heart, and I look forward to hearing about the continued success of MHS.

Best Regards,

Gordon Butler

The McKinney High School

We are the original, the beacon, the bridge between the past and the future for the city of McKinney.
