The Housley Story
The idea to begin a Leadership Institute was the vision of our dear friend, Kevin Housley. Kevin lived his life as a principled leader. He was a successful businessman who worked proudly alongside his father as Executive Vice President of Housley Communications. He was an avid rancher and he loved showing prize cattle with his son and daughter. He served his community tirelessly as a long-time member of the school board in Christoval and also served on the boards of the West Texas Boys Ranch, Angelo Civic Theatre, Sonrisas Therapeutic Riding, St. Luke United Methodist Church, Concho Country Emmaus Community, and the Texas Maine-Anjou Association. Kevin was eager to make a difference and in 2006 offered himself as a candidate for State Representative.
A few short months after this race, Kevin was diagnosed with the brain cancer which ultimately took his life in April 2008. Kevin is remembered by many as "a shining example of involvement as a community leader, a husband, a father, a son.
The Housley Principled Leadership Program (HPLP) is a seven week leadership dialogue and workshop designed to bring self-awareness to the development of student leaders. With sessions like You, Inc. covering individual brand power, themed discussions about the need for principled leaders and a panel stacked with business professionals that will challenge definitions of "service" - each week provides applicable and inspiring content.
Selected students attend seven Friday morning sessions throughout a semester. There is no cost for the program - meals and materials will be provided as well as four scholarship opportunities for individuals who complete the program with excellence.
We believe in helping extraordinary young leaders reach their potential, the Housley Principled Leadership Program is one of the ways we do it.
