Grapevine-Colleyville ISD trustee Louie Sullins has earned the designation of Master Trustee upon completion of Leadership TASB, a program sponsored by the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB). During the fifth session, June 28-30, school board members in the 2017-18 Leadership TASB class made presentations of their team's findings following yearlong research. Class participants researched critical issues related to assumed efforts to privatize Texas public education.
The Leadership TASB class met in conjunction with TASB's Summer Leadership Institute in Fort Worth. More than 1,000 new and veteran school leaders attended the Institute and received extensive training on every facet of effective board governance, heard keynote addresses from renowned education experts, and picked up valuable ideas from district showcases and networking opportunities.
After the graduation ceremony June 29, Sullins joined the ranks of more than 800 school board members statewide who are Leadership TASB alumni. The 2018 Leadership TASB class, composed of 30 school board members, represents Texas school districts of all sizes and property wealth. Participants who completed all required elements of the study program earned Master Trustee status, the highest designation recognized by TASB.
TASB is a voluntary, nonprofit association established in 1949 to serve local Texas school boards. School board members are the largest group of publicly elected officials in the state. The districts they represent serve more than 5.3 million public school students.
