Superintendent Receives Award

Congratulations to Dr. Sharon M. Shields, Superintendent of La Vega ISD, for receiving the Hoyle Award in Educational Leadership at last night's Awards Dinner at the 2017 Dr. John R. Hoyle Memorial Administrative Leadership Institute (ALI). The Hoyle Award in Educational Leadership honors John Hoyle, a “living legend” in educational administration due to his inspiring work as an author, researcher, and professor at Texas A&M University. The recipient is a practicing administrator who is making a difference in the lives of all youth for the betterment of society. Each year’s recipient 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.
