The regional center was established to provide support for new Core Knowledge schools and to enhance the quality of existing Core Knowledge schools in the area.

As the National Core Knowledge Coordinator of West Texas, Dr. Sam Ayers provided schools in the Lubbock area with professional development opportunities, educational programs to enhance classroom instruction, and instructional materials including lesson plans and nonfiction books.


On September 11, 2004, The Knowledge Center, Inc was organized as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization designed to provide support to area schools-students, teachers, and administrators. Dr. Sam Ayers, executive director, was charged with responsibility for organizing and developing educational programs, instructional materials, and relevant professional development.
