Robert E. Lee High School Principal serves as City Manager for the Day

January 10, 2017

Robert E. Lee High School Principal Dr. Dan Crawford spent the morning shadowing City of Tyler City Manager Ed Broussard as part of Tyler ISD’s Principal for a Day program. The morning kicked off with a “Half Mile of History” ceremony at Gallery Main Street before heading back to City Hall for a docket of scheduled meetings.


Through Principal for a Day held last fall, area business and civic leaders received a behind-the-scenes look into the daily operations of Tyler ISD campuses by shadowing the principal, meeting with students and faculty, attending student assemblies, and participating in other activities that make up the school day. To reciprocate the partnership, campus principals are then invited to experience the daily operations of the business or civic leader.


“I thought I always hit the ground running in the morning by answering emails, texts, phone calls, and things of that nature.” Dr. Crawford said. “But when I got to Mr. Broussard’s office, we only got a few sips of coffee down before heading out the door to our first meeting. The best part of this program is seeing the similarities of different types of jobs and taking a moment, such as this, to better understand how we can all work together for the sake of bettering our community.”


Tyler ISD and the Tyler Area Business Education Council hosted the third annual 2016 Principal for a Day event last November. Participating businesses and organizations included BCFS, Brookshire’s Grocery Company, Capstone College Advising, Centene, City of Tyler, Cooperative Teachers Credit Union, East Texas Professional Credit Union, FRESH, Hispanic Business Alliance, Mentoring Alliance, Mentoring Minds, NETHealth, Suddenlink, Super 1 Foods, Texas Bank & Trust, Tyler Junior College, Tyler Pipe, United Way of Smith County, UT Tyler, Walmart and Work Force Solutions East Texas Board.
