DSISD attends Lone Star Leadership Academy

Staff Report 

DRIPPING SPRINGS – Three students from Dripping Springs ISD attended the Lone Star Leadership Academy camp, hosted by nonprofit Education in Action.

Dripping Springs High School junior Natalee Scholl and sophomore Ryder Trent were attendees at the Austin/San Antonio camp, while Dripping Springs Middle School seventh-grader Jackson Moore attended the Houston/Galveston camp.

Students were nominated by educators to participate based on demonstrated leadership ability, academic success and involvement in school/community activities.

During the weeklong overnight camps, these students developed leadership skills. Participants experienced what they are learning in school through visits to notable and historically significant Texas sites. In addition, professionals at these sites introduced students to a wide variety of unique careers during each camp.

The Lone Star Leadership Academy experience provides a unique opportunity for outstanding students to learn about Texas leaders and what it means to be from the Lone Star State, according to a news release. Participants discuss what they learn, complete problem-solving and decision-making simulations, exercise creativity and practice presentation skills in Leadership Groups. 

In addition, participants have fun meeting other outstanding students and making new friends while adding to their resume of academic achievements, developing leadership skills, and bringing home a wealth of information to supplement what they are learning in school.
