Charles E. Rouse for Name on High School #4 sign now

We, the undersigned residents of the Leander Independent School District and/or graduates of Leander ISD hereby nominate Charles E. Rouse as the name for High School #4. Therefore, we petition the Leander ISD School Board to make an exception to or change Policy LDU-50-03, which states:

New Buildings shall be named for one of the following:
2. Deceased, significant individuals.

Charles E. Rouse was principal of Leander High School for sixteen years, from 1981 to 1997, when he retired. He was loved and respected by his teachers, staff, students and the community.

When Mr. Rouse came to LHS the school district was about to lose its accreditation with TEA. He was the catalyst that made LHS what it is today. It would be a tremendous honor for him to have the high school named after him while he is still alive to enjoy the honor.

He was instrumental in implementing many programs to enhance the lives of the students. He endeavored to build character in the students and helped them grow to be responsible and productive citizens.

Since his retirement, Mr. Rouse has continued his service to the community. He is a deacon and adult Bible study leader at New Hope First Baptist Church. He and his wife, Sandra, have taught pre-marital classes since 1995. He is also a Gideon.

Mr. Rouse has served on various committees and activities for the school district, including being a panel judge for Senior Project. Through the years he has remained supportive of the school district.

Mr. Rouse recently made trips with a group of men to East Texas and Louisiana to assist in restoring homes damaged by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. His life has been one of helping others.

Mr. Rouse is widely respected, a person of character and has a background of service to parents and students of the Leander Independent School District. Selecting Charles E. Rouse as the name of high school #4 will help assure his legacy of encouraging every student to make a difference wherever they are. Thank you for your consideration.
