GISD principals nominated for instruction awards

March 15, 2014

Two Granbury ISD principals were among finalists for instructional awards from the Effective Schools Project at Tarleton State University.

They were recognized during a professional development conference last month at the Granbury Resort Conference Center.

Stacie Brown, principal of Brawner Intermediate School, and Leslie Tewell, principal of Nettie Baccus Elementary School, were both nominated for the Instructional Leader Award.

Initiated in 1988, ESP has evolved into one of the nation’s largest and longest-running school improvement ventures.

According to Dr. Bill Larmer, the program was founded to provide professional development activities that involved principals and teachers as well as university professors and administrators. 

Effective leadership was envisioned as the key to improvement, and the award recognizes those who have earned the respect and recognition of those whom they serve.

Other Granbury educators have been honored by the program since its inception.

Acton Middle School principal Jimmy Dawson received the administrator award in 2010, as did Nancy Alana, then Baccus principal, in 2004.

Those receiving the teaching excellence award were: Pam Caver, Baccus (2013); Kathleen Huckabee, Granbury High School (1995); and Carol Horton, Baccus (2006).
