Headquartered in Austin, Texas and founded by Charles Butt, a lifelong advocate for public education, the Holdsworth Center will be a training academy for public school administrators such as current principals and superintendents. The nonprofit center will offer world class training and leadership development to Texas’ 1,200 school districts through a generous multi-year investment.
The Holdsworth design will provide space for participants to grow their leadership skills in a retreat setting that promotes reflection, thought and dialog. Classrooms will flexibly accommodate both individual and group projects. At every level within the education system, the Holdsworth Center will help cultivate inspired and enlightened leaders whose daily decisions will positively impact the future of our students and the state.
