This past week I was named the Superintendent of Distinction for the NW region of IASA. As with all recognition, this is truly humbling. The fact that is a recognition provided by my peers that work around and directly with me makes it even more so. It is vitally important, however, that it is noted that I receive recognition almost entirely based on the work of others. Such is the nature of the Superintendency — so, this award belongs to the faculty, staff, students, and Board of Education of Meridian 223 as much as it does to me.
