Lockhart Junior High School and Bluebonnet Elementary School Leaders Graduate from The Holdsworth Center Campus Leadership Program 

Lockhart Junior High School and Bluebonnet Elementary School leaders graduated Wednesday from The Holdsworth Center’s world-class Campus Leadership Program (CLP). The graduation took place at the institute’s campus on the shores of Lake Austin.

Graduates of the two-year intensive leadership training included Edgar Torres, Dana Sidle, Keitha Hernandez, Alethea Maldonado, and Heather Havens from Lockhart Junior High and Belinda Vasquez, Monica Saldivar, Katlin Stephens, and Kristina Sanchez from Bluebonnet Elementary. 

The CLP program is part of the school district’s partnership with The Holdsworth Center to build a pipeline of effective leaders across the school district to ensure students grow and thrive. Each of the campuses worked to identify a unique problem of practice at their school and apply what they learn through leadership development to effectively address it. 

In 2019, Lockhart Independent School District was chosen as one of six school districts selected for a 5-year leadership program and $6 million investment by The Holdsworth Center, the leadership institute for Texas public schools founded by H-E-B Chairman Charles Butt. Other districts in the cohort included Aldine ISD, Harlingen Consolidated ISD, Judson ISD, Mesquite ISD, and Spring ISD. LISD is the smallest of a total of 19 Texas school districts selected by The Holdsworth Center since the launch of its institute. 

“The Board and I are so proud of our CLP leaders and their journeys in leadership, aligning with our district value of UnLocking Potential,” said Superintendent Mark Estrada. “In Lockhart ISD, we believe empowerment is a catalyst for excellence, and as our leaders continue to grow, they help to grow other leaders, including our students.”
