CLHS Principal Announced
University of Texas graduate Blake Hays is the new principal of Canyon Lake High School, a UIL 4A-rated facility located at 8555 FM 32 in Fischer.
In his own words:
“Hello and Happy Fourth of July.
I wanted to introduce myself to the school and community of Canyon Lake. My name is Blake Hays, and I am coming to Canyon Lake after 9 years in Dripping Springs. Prior to that I lived and worked in North Carolina for 18 years. Don’t worry, I am a Texas boy. I was born and raised in Dallas, and went to the University of Texas at Austin. I have been an administrator for 15 years, and worked at all levels (elementary through high school). Outside of education, I have been a custodian, bus driver, outdoor instructor, and spent some time in construction. I am married and have two sons; one is a high school junior and one is heading to Texas State this fall.
I am very excited about Canyon Lake High School and have watched this school grow and become a great source of pride for the community. Just walking through the halls of the school recently, and talking with a handful of students, I can tell this is a great place. The kids were positive, the building looks great, and the staff I have met is eager. That is a perfect combination for a successful school. Why the change in principal? After some great work at CLHS, Corbee Wunderlich has been promoted to a district level position and will continue to be a strong voice in Comal ISD.
My goal this year is to learn what works well in this school and what can be better. I am a firm believer that schools become great through the collaboration of students, parents, and staff members. I am a straight talker and hope folks approach me that same way.
I look forward to working together with all of you.
So as the heat of the summer rises, find some cool water and try to enjoy yourselves. If you get a chance, come see me for a Meet and Greet on August 9th at 6:30PM at the high school. I look forward to becoming a part of this community.”
