57 Conroe ISD Students Attend Lone Star Leadership Academy

CONROE, TEXAS (August 30, 2023) – Fifty-seven Conroe ISD students, more than any other district in the state, attended Education in Action’s summer 2023 Lone Star Leadership Academy.

In total, 844 outstanding fourth through eighth graders across the state participated in one of three weeklong, overnight camps in Houston/Galveston, Dallas/Fort Worth, and Austin/San Antonio. An educator nominated each of these young leaders based on demonstrated leadership ability, academic success, and involvement in school/community activities.

During the camps, these distinguished students developed leadership skills, while learning about the great state of Texas. Participants experienced what they are learning in school through visits to notable and historically significant sites. Venues included the Fort Worth Stockyards, Perot Museum, the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, the Texas State Capitol, the Supreme Court of Texas, bat watching on the Lone Star Riverboat, The Alamo, NASA, a boat tour of Galveston Bay with a marine biologist, the San Jacinto Battleground Monument, and Moody Gardens.

The Lone Star Leadership Academy experience provides a unique opportunity for outstanding students to learn about Texas leaders and what it means to be from the Lone Star State. Participants discuss what they learn, complete problem solving and decision-making simulations, exercise creativity, and practice presentation skills in leadership groups.
