The College of Education and Human Development at Texas A&M University recently honored Spring ISD Superintendent Dr. Lupita Hinojosa, naming her as part of the 2022 Dean’s Roundtable.
For more than 30 years, the college has acknowledged and celebrated educators across the state, with more than 600 individuals being honored for their dedicated leadership and service to their communities.
On May 6, Dr. Hinojosa attended the annual event, held on Texas A&M campus, as an honoree for this year’s Roundtable.
“This recognition is a huge honor, coming from one of the best examples of education in our state,” Dr. Hinojosa said. “It is a celebration of the obstacles we have overcome here in Spring ISD, as well as the achievements we have been able to make as a school district. Thank you to our students, teachers, staff, families, community partners, and Board of Education for your support as we continue to make Spring ISD a school of choice. I know that together we will continue to make a difference in student lives.”
Dr. Hinojosa was honored as a transformational leader and “difference maker” for her dedication to equitable education, throughout her career as well as here in Spring ISD, and for her forward-thinking approach to ensuring that students in the district are given opportunities to succeed after graduation.
The Dean’s Roundtable was established in 1991 by Dr. Jane Stallings to recognize and elevate leaders throughout Texas.
The event raises money in support of scholarships, programs and college initiatives. Honorees can include current or former teachers, principals, superintendents, coaches, librarians, school counselors, health educators, professors, or other professionals and staff members who have careers in education and have dedicated their lives to helping others.
