GPISD Students Attend Lone Star Leadership Academy

Houston, Texas: Five GPISD students were selected during the 2015- 2016 school year to participate in the Lone Star Leadership Academy this past summer. Students traveled to Dallas/ Fort Worth or Austin/ San Antonio depending on their grade for a weeklong camp, which focused on developing leadership skills while learning about the great state of Texas.

During their time at the academy, participants completed problem solving and decision-making simulations and exercised their creativity and presentation skills.  Students were selected to attend based on their academic success, leadership ability, educator recommendation and involvement in school and community activities.

We are so proud of Jayla Gonzales (Green Valley Elementary), William Knowles (James B. Havard Elementary), Walter Knowles (North Shore Middle School), Roberto Macias (Sam Houston Elementary) and Kaylana Schools (Sam Houston Elementary) for their academic success.
