McArthur Receives Prestigious Scholarship
The Center for Executive Leadership at Lamar University has announced that Dr. Frances McArthur, Superintendent at Lexington ISD, is the recipient of a scholarship to attend the Lamar University Superintendent Academy, an advanced leadership training program on Lamar University’s Beaumont campus.
According to its Executive Director, Dr. Bob Thompson, participation in the Academy is by invitation only. The twenty-two superintendents in the 2012-2013 class were chosen from a list of approximately seventy-five nominees from Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma.
To be selected is an honor not only to the superintendent, Thompson said, but also to his or her board and district. Without the support of forward-looking boards, no superintendent could have achieved the level of success and recognition necessary to be selected to the Academy.
