Dr. Draper has taken his vision and passion for school transformation beyond the boundaries of Spring ISD. As a member of TASA's Public Education Visioning Institute, he is one of 35 superintendents who came together to produce a publication titled "Creating a New Vision for Public Education in Texas. The Resolution Concerning High Stakes, Standardized Testing of Texas Public School Students, which has been approved by districts statewide, is based upon tenets of the New Vision publication.
Dr. Draper has been a keynote speaker and lecturer at conferences, revivals, workshops, motivational seminars and youth events in 29 states, the District of Columbia and West Africa. He served two years as a co-host for the "Christ Is Your Answer" television program.
