Four BISD students were selected as outstanding 4th-8th graders to participate in Education in Action’s summer 2018 Lone Star Leadership Academy camp. These young leaders, Conor Braun from Bess Brannen Elementary School and Karen Farrel, Callie Link and Ainsley Wescott, all from Grady Rasco Middle School, were selected for the Lone Star Leadership Academy camps based on demonstrated academic success and leadership ability, an educator recommendation and involvement in school/community activities. Our four young leaders joined other participating students, representing communities across Texas, at camp in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

During the weeklong, overnight camp, these four distinguished students developed leadership skills while learning about the great state of Texas. They experienced what they are learning in school through visits to notable and historically significant Texas sites. Venues included places such as the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing, the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District and the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza on the Dallas/Fort Worth program. In addition, professionals from the Dallas/Fort Worth area introduced students to a wide variety of unique careers during camp.

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. In addition, participants have fun meeting other outstanding students and making new friends while adding to their resume of academic achievements, developing leadership skills and bringing home a wealth of information to supplement what they are learning in school.

Education in Action is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to empowering young people to be informed and active leaders in their communities.
