Congratulations to the 2019-2020 Lufkin ISD Leadership Academy graduates! This is the fourth year for a cohort of Lufkin ISD employees to come together for the sole purpose of honing leadership skills. The Academy develops leadership capacity in participants to enable them to progress as leaders on their campuses and in the district. The group is headed up by Deputy Superintendent, Kurt Stephens and Assistant Superintendent of Education Services and Accountability, Barbara Lazarine.

The selection process for this cohort included an application, essays, and a recommendation from the employees’ principal. All of the participants either have a Master’s degree or are working to attain one soon. The class helps aid the district in preparing internal candidates for leadership positions.
