Dear Texas Leadership Family,
It is with great sadness that I let you know of the passing of Ron Carroll, who unexpectedly passed away on Sunday in Arlington, Texas.
Mr. Carroll came to work at Texas Leadership on July 8, 2013 after an 18-year career with the San Angelo Independent School District. Prior to that, Mr. Carroll had served with, and retired from, the United States Air Force.
Prior to his retirement from education on February 26, 2021, Mr. Carroll had served as the principal of the elementary school at Texas Leadership of San Angelo and the first principal at Texas Leadership of Arlington before moving to the role of Dean of Students. He also faithfully served the organization as our first District Emergency Management Coordinator.
Mr. Carroll was solidly fulfilling his responsibilities as a Texas Leadership Principal in San Angelo when he was asked to move to Arlington to become the first Texas Leadership Principal there. Leaving what had become home for him, he cheerfully relocated and played a major role in establishing our presence in the metroplex.
The term servant leader, one of our organization’s core values, exemplified Mr. Carroll in all areas of his life. His willingness to serve wherever asked and whenever needed and his love for the people he served with and for are the things many of us will remember him for as we move forward in life.
We have counseling and grief support readily available on site at school for our students and staff.
