Lamar CISD Superintendent Dr. Thomas Randle is the 2012 recipient of the Administrative Leadership Institute’s Hoyle Award in Educational Leadership.
The Institute, located at Texas A&M University, honored Dr. Randle at its annual banquet, Nov. 7.
The Hoyle Award honors John Hoyle, author, researcher and professor at Texas A&M who is a legend in the field of educational administration. The award is given annually to “a practicing administrator who exemplifies the educator who ‘leads with love,’ is a futurist with ‘one foot in the present and one foot in the future,’ champions the ‘generic kid’ and tackles difficult situations ‘where even the cockroaches carry crowbars.’”
Dr. Randle has bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Texas A&M. He has been the superintendent at Lamar CISD since 2001.
