Associate principal Lyndsey Williamson has been promoted to become the next principal of Cooper High School beginning in the 2019-2020 school year.

The promotion of Williamson follows the April announcement that Dr. Karen Munoz, principal at CHS for the past eight years, would become executive director of secondary education. Williamson has served as Munoz’s associate principal for the past two school years.

“Lyndsey Williamson has been an outstanding leader in the Abilene Independent School District for many years,” Superintendent Dr. David Young said. “I am both confident and excited that the students, staff and all of Cougar Nation will rise to even greater heights under her leadership as principal.”

Prior to arriving at Cooper, Williamson was the principal at Holland Medical High School from 2015-2017. She also has worked in Abilene ISD as a guidance counselor at Abilene High School, a geometry and algebra teacher at AHS, and a Pre-AP algebra teacher at Mann Middle School.

Williamson, whose career with the district began in 2005, has both bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Angelo State University. She is a native of Brownwood.
