Leadership & Empowerment Team

In the summer of 2020, a group of Mesquite ISD staff members formed the Leadership and Empowerment Team (LET) with the goal of establishing a culture of dignity that supports a sense of belonging for all students. Led by Dr. LaDonna Gulley, director of leadership and empowerment, LET includes staff, students, recent alumni, representatives from the community and Mesquite ISD trustees.

Mesquite ISD's curriculum does not promote or support any political agenda or viewpoint. At the high school level, students may choose to explore diverse leadership perspectives through a multi-year leadership program called "Emerging Leaders." This unique pathway is currently in development as part of the LET initiative.
