The chairman and CEO of H-E-B, a Texas-based grocery chain, is sinking more than $100 million into the launch of a new institute focused on improving school leadership in Texas' public schools.

The Holdsworth Center for Excellence in Education Leadership's first program, underwritten by Charles Butt, will start with six districts in June.

Ruth Simmons, a former president of Smith College and Brown University, will lead the 17-member board of directors, which is made up of high-profile leaders from education, business, and elsewhere.
