Nominated by: Kerri White

Mark Templeton, retired CEO of Citrix Corporation, envisioned top-level school, district, and state leaders getting executive training in how effective organizations across sectors achieve transformation.  He championed the concept, seeded the work, and engaged other stakeholders to implement the University of Virginia’s Darden/Curry Partnership for Leaders in Education (PLE), combining the most innovative thinking in business and education. Since 2003 the PLE’s signature turnaround program has impacted reading and math achievement in over 300 of the lowest performing schools across 17 states.  PLE programs have led to systemic changes in districts and states across the country, contributing to hundreds of thousands of students receiving a better education.
