Katy ISD Students Shine at 2023 Lone Star Leadership Academy Camps

September 13 2023

Ten Katy ISD students were among 840 outstanding 4th through 8thgraders from across Texas who recently had the opportunity to hone their leadership skills at the 2023 Lone Star Leadership Academy camps.  During the camps, which took place in Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, Houston and Galveston, students completed problem solving and decision-making simulations, exercises in creativity, and practiced presentation skills. 

Throughout the weeklong camps, these distinguished students developed leadership skills while also learning about the great state of Texas. “It’s always wonderful to see students taking on a leadership role and making it a priority to learn about the rich history of the State of Texas,” said Dr. Christine Caskey, Chief Academic Officer at Katy ISD. “In addition to visiting the Alamo, Natural Bridge Caverns and other iconic sights these students also visited the State Capitol where they met with elected officials to learn about teamwork,” Caskey added.
