Curtis Evans and Donald Davis

Trustees Finalizes Leadership Training (Fort Worth) - Spring ISD trustee Donald Davis and Wharton ISD trustee Curtis Evans have earned the designation of Master Trustee upon completion of Leadership TASB, a program sponsored by the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB).

During this fifth and final session, June 20–22, school board members in the 2018–19 Leadership TASB class made presentations of their team’s findings following yearlong research. Class participants researched 12 specific critical issues and their impact on 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 21, Leadership TASB participants joined the ranks of more than 900 school board members statewide who are Leadership TASB alumni.

The 2019 Leadership TASB class, composed of 33 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. Leadership TASB is sponsored in part by H-E-B. 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 5.4 million public school students.
