Selection for the Lone Star Leadership Academy was based on each student's demonstrated academic success and leadership ability, an educator recommendation, and involvement in school and community activities. </span><span style="line-height:1.5;">​</span></p><p>During the Lone Star Leadership Academy camps, selected students joined delegations of other distinguished students from across the state to develop leadership skills while learning about the great state of Texas. They also completed problem solving and decision-making simulations, exercised creativity, and practiced presentation skills in leadership groups.  Participants experienced what they are learning in school through visits to historically, politically, scientifically, and environmentally significant sites. </p><p><strong>Katy ISD students who participated in the 2014 Leadership Academy are: </strong></p><p><strong>Beckendorff Junior High</strong>: Caleb Oneal</p><p><strong>Cinco Ranch Junior High</strong>: Jake Dickson</p><p><strong>Holland Elementary</strong>: Ashlee Ballard, Eduardo Diaz, April Feng, Elena Yu and Grace Zhang </p><p><strong>Seven Lakes Junior High: </strong>Jake Wilson</p><p>For more information about the Lone Star Leadership Academy or to nominate outstanding students for 2015 programs, visit <a href="" style="text-decoration:underline;"></a>.</p></div>
