“The individuals selected as Leader Fellows are some of the most committed and passionate counselors, advisers, and teachers in the state,” said Laura Brennan, Director of Texas OnCourse. “They change the lives of their students every day. Now, as Texas OnCourse Leader Fellows, they will help transform college and career planning in Texas.”
