George E. Hopper, Jr. was selected as the namesake for Middle School #15. George spent 32 of his 42 years in education working in CFISD. He began his tenure with the district in 1972 as a teacher and coach at the inception of Jersey Village High School. He also served as assistant principal and associate principal at Jersey Village.
