The Holdsworth Center’s Mission

Making an Impact

Our mission is longstanding, and we’re dedicated to seeing it through.

Our Mission

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. To learn more about The Holdsworth Center visit their website at  

Charles Butt named the center for his mother, Mary Elizabeth Holdsworth, who taught school in the 1920s in Center Point, TX (near Kerrville)
