Several honored at annual Administrative Leadership Institute

Retired Highland Park ISD Superintendent Cathy Bryce received one of the most coveted awards amongst Texas educators at this year’s John R. Hoyle Memorial Administrative Leadership Institute.

Presented by the Department of Educational Administration and Human Resource Development and the Texas Association of School administrators, the Golden Deeds Award is given to an individual who has improved the educational system in Texas to enrich the lives of all public school students.

Dr. Bryce began her 33-year education career as a choir and English teacher, serving as a high school assistant principal, middle school principal, director of curriculum and instruction, and assistant and deputy superintendent on her path to becoming the superintendent of schools in both Weatherford ISD and Highland Park ISD. In 2000, she was Texas’ nominee for AASA National Superintendent of the Year Award.

Bryce continues to serve Texas public schools districts around the state in areas of school finance, leadership, school board training and long-range planning. She is the chairman of the Region 11 Education Service Center Board of Directors, a member of the University of North Texas Foundation Board of Directors, and she serves as vice chairman of the University of North Texas Alumni Association. Bryce also chairs the Advocacy Committee for the School of Education at the University of North Texas and is a member of the Advisory Board for the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science and of the Kershaw’s Challenge Board of Directors.

Several other awards were also presented at this year’s ALI.
