In 2017, TMPA received permission from David Kimberly and the Klein ISD/PD team to adapt Leadership Academy (a program developed by Klein) for a statewide project. This amazing group of people continue to share their knowledge and experience, as instructors for the Leadership Academy: Texas Facilitator Trainings. We would like to express our appreciation and gratitude to them for not only their continued support; without them this program would not be possible.

In 2015, David Kimberly, Elizabeth Gilleland with their team from Klein ISD and Klein ISD Police Department created and launched Leadership Academy at 12 Klein ISD campuses. As of 2018, 1700 students have gone through Klein's Leadership Academy program; which is now at 35 of their elementary and middle school campuses. They have seen amazing results in the lives of countless students since the program began. Klein ISD PD has generously shared their work with many other districts, and in 2017 Leadership Academy: Texas received a grant to expand the program statewide. We are thankful for their partnership.
Bill Hyche is the author of the Handbook for Success, which he wrote as a way to pass along some of the lessons he learned from his family, friends, and colleagues throughout the years to his children and grandchildren. We are thankful to Bill for sharing these life lessons with us as well. “What started as a book for my grandchildren has become an eye opening way to not only connect with a young person but to provide a playbook for how to be a kind and successful person for the rest of their lives. I'm proud and encouraged to see law enforcement, educators and executives embrace this book as a tool to open a dialog and build relationships with the youth around them.” -Bill Hyche
