The Texas Lyceum recently elected Collin Cox as its President-Elect for 2012. Formed 31 years ago, the Texas Lyceum was created to provide a bipartisan forum for 96 leaders from across the state to discuss and consider the most prominent issues facing Texas communities. Alumni of the group include President George W. Bush, U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, Governor Rick Perry, former Texas Comptroller John Sharp, state senators Rodney Ellis and Kirk Watson, and former Houston Mayor Bill White.
Collin is slated to serve as Texas Lyceum President in 2013 and will select issues and cities for that year's conferences. He also recently participated in the spring 2011 class of Center for Houston’s Future, a leadership organization focused on issues facing Houston and the surrounding area.
