The Holdsworth Center is a non-profit organization founded and largely funded by Charles Butt, Chairman of H-E-B, a regional retail company. Our mission is to impact, over time, the quality of K-12 public education for all Texas students by supporting and developing leaders. We partner with public school districts over five years to help them grow and inspire future outstanding leaders at all education levels. In the spirit of supporting education, leaders from around the state will be brought to the Campus on Lake Austin to be fully immersed in the leadership curriculum of The Holdsworth Center.
