The Student Leadership Academy – Summer Residential Program takes students through the history of WWII with the aim of exploring leadership lessons from one of the most important periods in world history. This six-night, seven-day program immerses students in the Museum’s wealth of exhibits, artifacts, images and documents with structured Leadership Lesson Debates along the way. Students will experience what it was like to be a member of a five-man crew inside a Sherman Tank, inspect the flight logs of a bomber pilot and handle the gear of an infantryman in WWII.
Not only will students have the unique opportunity to study WWII history at one of the world’s top-rated museums and meet some of the men and women who experienced the war firsthand, they will also venture out to historic sites in the community, including the Chalmette National Battlefield and NASA Michoud Assembly Facility, the former site of the plant that produced the Higgins Boats used in the war.
Upon completion of these programs, students will leave with a deeper understanding of US history and knowledge of the skills exhibited by some of our nation’s most distinguished leaders.

Humble ISD Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Fagen
will discuss the
State of Humble ISD
Teacher. Leader. Parent. Those three words characterize Dr. Elizabeth Fagen, who joined Humble ISD in July 2016 as Superintendent.
Born and raised in Iowa, Dr. Fagen was the daughter of a public school educator. Naturally, she spent many evenings and weekends with her mother at school events. “Education is something that is a part of who I am, and really always have been,” Dr. Fagen said.
She earned her bachelor’s degree from William Penn University in Oskaloosa, Iowa, and her doctoral and master’s degrees and her education specialist degree from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.
She spent the first 12 years of her career in Iowa. Beginning as a high school biology and chemistry teacher, she progressed into positions as associate principal, principal, and executive director of high schools. Ultimately in Iowa, she became Associate Superintendent of Des Moines Independent School District.
In 2016, Humble ISD’s reputation for outstanding schools that serve the whole child attracted her to the district. She and her husband Matt, an engineer, have two school-age daughters. They loved the Lake Houston Area and its longstanding reputation for supporting education.
“I am not only an educator and a superintendent, but also the parent of children in my own district,” Dr. Fagen said. “That’s very important to me. I feel like being a parent has made me a much better teacher and leader.”
As a leader, Dr. Fagen believes each community is unique and that is why her top priority as Humble ISD’s new Superintendent is to listen, learn and build relationships. “I don’t come to the table saying “Hey I’m here. I’ve got all the answers. Let’s get started doing the stuff I want,” Dr. Fagen said. “ I just don’t think that’s leadership. I equate it to the way we work with children. Children are unique. There’s not a one-size-fits-all approach that works for every single child, and I feel the same way about my role and my position. ”
