And the Triple E Award Goes To...

Kelley Carr, Principal at Lakeview receives Triple E Award

One of the biggest honors a Lobo FamiLE member can receive is the District's Triple E Award. Former Superintendent, Dr. Lowell Strike began this District tradition two years ago as a way to recognize amazing individuals who go beyond their job to have a tremendous impact on students, teachers, and staff members district-wide. Superintendent Daniel Gallagher presented Kelley Carr, Lakeview Elementary Principal, with this honor at Monday evening's school board meeting. The Triple E represents the three main components of our Little Elm ISD mission, to Engage, Equip, and Empower.


"Kelley represents someone who has stepped up and is part of making extraordinary things happen, such as the Lobos Care," said Gallagher. Lobos Care was started a few years back when Carr and Oak Point Principal, Debbie Clark, visited Southwest Airlines to learn its secret to creating a work culture where people love to work. Lobos Care is a committee of leaders, but mainly teachers, who have developed a culture of celebration and what each person does to make Little Elm ISD great.  "When she came back, the first meeting was at her campus and it was her goal and mission to move this across the District."

As Gallagher called Carr up to the front of the board room, she was in shock. "Kelley is quick to give credit to others. That's what makes her an incredible leader. She's also stepped up to facilitate the kindergarten through second grade standards based grading revision with a team of teachers across the District. I am proud to give her this recognition," said Gallagher.

Carr was joined by most of her staff and immediate family members to witness the honor.
