San Eli HS NHS Members Attend LEAD Conference In D.C. for First Time

A group of National Honor Society (NHS) members from San Elizario High School (SEHS) had the privilege to attend the Leadership Experience and Development (LEAD) conference in Washington, D.C.

“This is the first time our NHS students take a trip like this,” said Wendy Valdes, Physics teacher at SEHS. “As an adviser, it was wonderful to see my students take part in this conference and also experience the history and culture of Washington, D.C. I know they will remember this trip for the rest of their lives.”

The primary focus of the conference is to help students and advisers sharpen their leadership skills, improve school culture and community, and network with peers from all over the U.S.

Students had the opportunity to attend individual workshops that focused on topics such as leadership, student voice, civic engagement, and service.

“This was an eye-opening experience for me,” said Lorenzo Leyva, junior at SEHS. “I met and collaborated with peers from different states, explored the city, rode the subway for the first time, and realized that decisions made in D.C. can affect us here at home in San Eli. I came back with some really good ideas that can help out our school and community.”

After the conference, the group got to visit the National Archives, the Smithsonian Museum of U.S. History, the Washington and Lincoln Memorials, and the Holocaust Museum. They also got free tours of the Capitol and the White House courtesy of Congressman Will Hurd.

The LEAD conference is open to NHS members from across the country. Initially there were 15 students from SEHS that were eligible to attend but due to athletics, academics, or other prior commitments, only nine were able to go.

The conference and tour was held earlier this month, from February 1st through 3rd, 2019.

San Elizario ISD Among Districts Selected For LSG Exemplar Cohort

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) announced the eight Texas school districts that were selected to be part of the inaugural Lone Star Governance (LSG) Exemplar Cohort and the San Elizario Independent School District (SEISD) made it on the list.

“I feel very excited our district qualified,” said Irene D. Jaquez, San Elizario ISD Board President. “It is such an honor to be part of a training that will streamline our main objectives which are student outcomes. We ask the students to raise the bar, and we should lead by example,” she added.

The LSG Exemplar Cohort is designed for high-performing local governing teams—school board members and their superintendents—that want to continue honing their focus on improving student outcomes.

San Elizario ISD Superintendent, Dr. Jeannie Meza-Chavez, shares the same excitement as Jaquez and is looking forward to the support and unprecedented experience that will be provided by TEA and certified LSG Coaches.

“I am excited for the San Elizario ISD team. This speaks highly to the work that continues to be done by all at different levels in our district,” Meza-Chavez said.

Mike Morath, Texas Commissioner of Education, says school districts like SEISD are already demonstrating effective governance practices where the success of every student is the focus.

“As part of the inaugural LSG Exemplar Cohort, the school board members and superintendents in these districts seek to take their efforts to the next level, which can lead to better student outcomes in their communities,” Morath said.

San Elizario ISD, along with the other seven districts that were selected, will take part in the Texas Education Agency’s Lone Star Governance training for school board members with their superintendents.
