Alumni Regional Directors

Meet Our Regional Directors

Raise Your Hand Texas not only invests in innovative public school principals, we also partner with visionary leaders we’ve sponsored. We can’t be everywhere in the state at once, so these men and women help us maintain connections with our alums in every Texas region. Our regional directors assist in advancing Raise Your Hand Texas’ strategic direction in their respective regions while supporting principals in driving operational excellence on their respective campuses.
