ASU Leadership Course Finale

April 14, 2014

Students in Angelo State University’s Housley Principled Leadership course will hear from three Texas leaders as a finale to the course originally developed in part by the late San Angelo businessman Kevin Housley.

Fred McClure, executive director of the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation, Texas Rep. Drew Darby of San Angelo and Rep. Joe Straus, speaker of the Texas House of Representatives, will share their insights on leadership with the class on Thursday, April 17.  The class is not open to the public.  

The Housley Principled Leadership course, founded by Housley and fellow businessman Bill Poston who met as students at Texas State University, was originally launched at TSU.  Dr. Karen Shumway, associate dean of ASU’s College of Business and professor of management, said the “capstone course” would be an introspective experience for students, requiring them to examine their own strengths and areas they might need to work on if they plan to move into leadership positions in their careers.

For the spring semester, the course was expanded to ASU and Trinity University in San Antonio.  Poston, founding partner of Kalypso, a global consulting firm focused on innovation, product development and product life-cycle management, and Reagan Pugh, marketing manager for Kalypso, taught the class.  ASU professors who have been shadowing them will be teaching the course in the future.
