We would like to offer you a warm Waller welcome!
The Waller area encompasses the Waller Independent School District and covers over 320 square miles. Most visitors don't know, but the area includes the communities of Waller, Hockley, Fields Store, Rosehill, and Pine Island. This geographically diverse area extends into both Harris and Waller counties.
The City of Waller is located about 45 miles west of Houston just down US Hwy 290. About half of the town is in Harris County and the other in Waller County. Out here small town charm is still alive in both the area and it's people.
Next time you are on you way to Austin or Bryan / College Station, stop by and have lunch or take a tour of the area.
Thank you so much to everyone that attended our Annual Dinner and made it such a success. A HUGE thank you to Camp Allen for the wonderful venue, great food and amazing service. A special thank you to Judge Albert McCaig Jr. for speaking and congratulations to Bryan Lowe – WACC Volunteer of the Year and Heather Stautmeister – WACC Citizen of the Year.
We would also like to express our appreciation to Trey Duhon, Stacy McBride and Suzzettee Von Gontard for their time and service on the WACC Board – THANK YOU!

Waller Area Chamber of Commerce Recognizes Fields Store Elementary Teacher
The Waller Area Chamber of Commerce selected Brandi Spiller, a first grade teacher at Fields Store Elementary School, as the February Waller Area Chamber of Commerce Teacher of the Month. School Principal Melissa Crosby and honoree Brandi Spiller were invited to attend the February 18 monthly luncheon for the special announcement. Spiller is a Waller High School and Sam Houston State University graduate. Crosby said of Spiller, “She is a leader among leaders in reading; it is her expertise. She teaches students to read and they refer to each other as Spiller Smarties.” When asked about why she chose to be a teacher, Spiller said, “Teaching is my passion. I come from a large family of educators; it is in my blood and I love it.” Spiller was presented a teacher recognition certificate of appreciation and a gift bag for the recognition. Fields Store Elementary School is located in Waller ISD’s northwestern region in Waller at Giboney Road and FM 1488. The school has 685 students enrolled in Pre-Kindergarten through fifth grades. A special thanks to Chamber Administrator, Rhonda Plata, for coordinating the event, and to the Waller Area Chamber of Commerce for their continuous support of Waller ISD schools.
