Judy Gentry  
Granbury ISD career and technical education director Judy Gentry was the recipient of a top award at the Granbury Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Best of Business Awards Banquet on February 3, 2017, at the Granbury Resort Conference Center.
Gentry was awarded the Howard Clemmons Distinguished Service Award during a banquet featuring several awards for local businesses and chamber volunteers.  The Clemmons award goes to individuals who most closely represent a former chamber chairman’s unselfish dedication to the chamber and the people of Granbury and Hood County.
Starting in the GISD as a teacher at Granbury High School in 1997, Gentry was named the campus Teacher of the Year for the 2008-09 school year.  She became the district CTE director in September 2009.  Gentry also has been president of the Career and Technical Educators of North Texas, which serves the Dallas-Fort Worth area covered by the Regions 10 and 11 education service centers.
During Gentry’s tenure and leadership, the CTE program has grown to include a number of successful opportunities for students – a few include F1 in Schools, Project Lead The Way engineering program, and Eagle’s Nest aviation program.  Gentry has also expanded community partnerships with Luminant and Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant, Lake Granbury Medical Center, Granbury Police Department. A new addition at the transformed high school includes state-of-the-art facilities.  CTE offers numerous career pathways and high school endorsement options for students.
