Tracy Carter, Dean of Academic Advancement at TMI – The Episcopal School of Texas was selected to participate in the next Leadership San Antonio class. She is the only participant to represent an independent school.
“I am honored to have been selected to be a part of Leadership San Antonio Class 38,” said Carter. “ I am looking forward to coming together with my fellow classmates to observe the functional workings of San Antonio and examine the issues, obstacles and challenges facing our community.”
Carter has been an administrator at TMI since Fall 2011. She collaborates with students, parents and faculty with a focus on optimizing academic performance, teaches study skills and coordinates the school’s community-service initiatives. Previously, she was an Academic Mastery teacher at Fair Oaks Ranch Elementary School. Carter holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a master’s in education for guidance and counseling. She is a former executive board member of the Junior League of San Antonio and has a long history of volunteering throughout the San Antonio area.
”TMI is proud that one of our outstanding teachers, Tracy Carter, has been selected to participate in Leadership San Antonio,” said TMI Headmaster John W. Cooper, Ph.D. “Tracy exemplifies servant leadership, a hallmark of the TMI mission, and I’m sure she will make an impact on our community through the program.”
Since 1975, Leadership San Antonio has been sponsored by the Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce and San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Class members meet monthly and visit key industries and government offices and hear from industry and elected officials to gain in-depth knowledge of the community, awareness of its institutions and familiarity with its leadership and structure.
The program identifies individuals who are active and have demonstrated leadership in their chosen profession as well as in community organizations. Leadership San Antonio exposes participants to a wide array of issues to develop perspective on alternate views about issues facing the San Antonio metropolitan area.
Past graduates of the program include former Texas Secretary of State Hope Andrade, Southwest Airlines President Emerita Colleen Barrett, U.S. Rep. Charlie Gonzalez, U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith and County Judge Nelson Wolff.
The 38th class of Leadership San Antonio will begin meeting in January 2013.
