SBISD Administration Building has been renamed Wayne F. Schaper, Sr., Leadership Center

The Spring Branch ISD Administration Building located at 955 Campbell Road has been officially renamed the Wayne F. Schaper, Sr., Leadership Center after recent action taken by the district Board of Trustees.

Trustees voted in May 2012 to rename the central administration building in honor of Schaper, who remains a long-serving Trustee and was a district administrator, Memorial High School principal, math teacher and coach. He is currently serving as Board Secretary.

The Wayne F. Schaper, Sr., Leadership Center includes offices for the Superintendent of Schools and many other administrators. It also functions as the main location for monthly public meetings of the SBISD Board of Trustees. In addition, many public workshops and other meetings are held there.
May’s Board renaming action occurred as Schaper’s combined service as a Trustee and former SBISD employee reached the 50-year mark. The Spring Branch Education Foundation also honored him in May by creating the Wayne F. Schaper Sr. Fund for Excellence. That fund raised more than $20,000 as it was announced

Schaper has now served more than a decade as a SBISD Trustee. His career in the Spring Branch community began in 1961 when he joined Landrum Junior High School as a mathematics teacher and coach. After a year of teaching and coaching at Spring Woods High, he became principal at Memorial High. He was Memorial principal for 23 years before joining SBISD central administration.

After retiring, he was elected to the SBISD Board of Trustees in 2002. He was the Board President for three years, and he has also served as the Board Secretary for several years now

Schaper remains active in Holy Cross Lutheran Church, the Memorial Spring Branch Rotary Club, East Spring Branch Food Pantry, and the American Heart Society Neighborhood Fund.
Schaper and his wife, Ruby, are the proud parents of four children who are all graduates of SBISD. Several of his grandchildren are also SBISD graduates.
