Dr. Catherine Kennedy, Ed.D, associate superintendent of middle schools at the Ysleta Independent School District, will be honored for her wide-ranging contributions to education this month when she is inducted into the 2019 El Paso Women’s Hall of Fame.
With a career spanning 29 years as a teacher and administrator, Kennedy oversees nine middle schools, two international schools, and the Young Women’s Leadership Academy at Ysleta ISD, which serves 41,000 students at 60 campuses.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in science, a master’s degree in educational administration, and a doctorate in educational leadership from the University of Texas at El Paso.
The El Paso Women’s Hall of Fame was established in 1989 by the El Paso Commission for Women to honor outstanding women for their long-term contributions to the community.
