Marilyn Glover, trustee from Fort Bend ISD joined 35 other school board members from across Texas September 30-October 2 at the kickoff session of the Leadership TASB class of 2012. Selected by the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB), the group is participating in a yearlong education leadership study program.
These trustees represent school districts of all sizes, with student populations of 262 to 62,000, and reflect a similar range of property wealth.
Participants who complete all required elements of the study will graduate next year by earning Master Trustee status. This is the highest designation recognized by TASB.
Meeting in conjunction with the Texas Association of School Administrators/TASB convention in Austin, the trustees heard featured speakers Peter DeLisle, Ph.D. and Debra Fine. DeLisle, Leslie B. Crane chair and director of the Posey Leadership Institute at Austin College, focused on leadership and team building.
Fine is a nationally known motivational speaker and author of The Fine Art of Small Talks. Board members also received training at convention sessions and attended the TASB Delegate Assembly, the Association’s annual business meeting.
