Distinguished Educator, Former Student To Be Honored At ALI

A distinguished former student will be honored with one of the most coveted awards amongst Texas educators at the 2017 Dr. John R. Hoyle Memorial Administrative Leadership Institute (ALI). Dr. Karen Rue ‘02, clinical professor at Baylor University’s School of Education, will receive the Golden Deeds For Education Award on Thursday, Nov. 30, for her years of educational service.
The Golden Deeds Award is given to an educator who has been a consistently positive force for Texas students and teachers. A nominating committee consisting of statewide superintendents selects recipients.
Dr. Rue’s educational career spans over 37 years. She served in multiple areas including superintendent at both Northwest ISD and Tuloso-Midway ISD, served as president of both the TASA and the Urban Superintendents of America Association and is a founding member of the Public Education Visioning Institute.
Dr. Rue has also won numerous awards including the 2014 Region XI Superintendent of the Year, the U.S Congressional Achievement Award, and was named one of the nation’s Top 50 Innovators in Education by the Center for Digital Education.
ALI, held Nov. 30 – Dec. 1, is an annual event that brings together diverse leaders in public education to connect, network, and promote student success.
“It provides superintendents and other district leaders with a time for reflection as they build personal leadership capacity,” Dr. Beverly Irby, professor of educational administration and ALI Co-Director, said.
The Department of Educational Administration and Human Resource Development (EAHR) and the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) sponsor the conference.
The conference also serves as a way of honoring educators who have demonstrated transformative leadership in teaching and learning.
The ALI banquet will kick off Thursday, Nov. 30, at the George Hotel. The conference will continue at the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center on Friday, Dec. 1. More information about ALI can be found on the EAHR event page.
