Hudson Bend Middle School 7th grader Julius Heitkoetter and Lake Travis High School 9th grader Alyssa Curry were two of the more than 900 students across Texas who participated in Education in Action’s summer 2015 Lone Star Leadership Academy camp.  

According to Education Action, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering young people to be informed and active leaders in their communities, the students were selected for the camp based on demonstrated academic success and leadership ability, an educator recommendation, and involvement in school/community activities.
