Local Superintendent Named John Hoyle Educational Leadership Award Recipient
Chilton ISD Superintendent, Mr. Brandon Hubbard, has been named the 2018 John Hoyle Educational Leadership Award recipient. The award will be presented during the John Hoyle Administrative Leadership Institute (ALI) banquet on Thursday, November 29, 2018. Hubbard, a 16-year veteran of public education, has served as a teacher, assistant principal, principal, and superintendent. Having served the last seven years in Chilton ISD as the secondary principal, interim superintendent, and superintendent, Hubbard began his career as a science teacher at the A.J. Moore Academy in Waco ISD.
The John Hoyle Leadership Award is presented to a practicing educator who is making a difference in the lives of all students for the betterment of society. Each selected recipient “leads with love,” is a futurist with “one foot in the present and one foot in the future,” champions all students, and faces challenges with integrity and resolve.
Hubbard believes that this award is a reflection of the commitment and dedication of all administrators, staff, teachers, and community members who serve Chilton ISD. Hubbard referenced the late Dr. Myles Munroe in suggesting that “vision is the capacity to see further than your eyes can look.” Thus, in order to be successful, we must develop the capacity to see beyond our students’ situations and circumstances. Not only must we develop the capacity to become visionaries, but we must also cultivate the insight to move based upon our vision and the resilience to finish the course.
The Hoyle award, named after John Hoyle, professor of K-12 administration and well-known authority of educational leadership is sponsored by Texas A&M University’s School of Education and the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA).
