Chris Feris had to take a step back when he first entered his office as Conroe’s new athletic director to take in the big picture. After spending so much of his life involved with high school sports – from playing baseball alongside future stars like Craig Biggio and Lance Berkman, to serving as a graduate assistant at Rice – Feris realized administration was something he’d long been contemplating but hadn’t pursued until now.
Feris had just joined CISD, which spans 348 square miles across Shenandoah, Oak Ridge North, Conroe and unincorporated Montgomery County. For his first few months on the job he spent much of his time exploring with longtime athletic director Danny Long to familiarize himself with schools and athletic venues – particularly taking notice of a brand new natatorium built to host water polo matches as well as upgrades made at Buddy Moorhead Stadium – home to Conroe football and soccer teams.
Conroe isd sso students discover and nurture their artistic passions through an expansive fine arts curriculum.

Davis notes that many former students who are now married or parents still proudly display their framed district art show artwork in their home.
