With nearly 55 years of service to the district, Schaper started as a teacher and coach at Landrum Middle School in 1961 before eventually serving as principal at Memorial High School for 20 years before retiring as a district administrator in 2001. He is currently serving his fourth three-year term on the Spring Branch ISD Board of Trustees.
Furniture retailer Jim “Mattress Mack” Macingvale’s keynote address highlighted the importance of work in a person’s life, a message amplified by Master of Ceremonies Bill Stubbs.
Newspring is a non-profit that helps at-risk populations in Spring Branch define and achieve a bright future, through visual arts and business development programs.
