CCISD's Greg Smith named Superintendent of the Year
Clear Creek Independent School District’s superintendent was named Superintendent of the Year for the region.
Greg Smith was nominated by the CCISD Board of Trustees for his student-centered leadership. Region 4 represents 53 school districts, seven counties and more than 1 million students.
“Smith leads by example and will represent the Region 4 superintendents well in the state process,” said Rudy Okruhlik, interim executive director for Region 4, in a press release.
Smith, who has been the district’s superintendent since 2008, said he shares the award with coworkers and others invested in children.
“We firmly believe the success of a community is measured by the success of its children,” Smith said. “This honor reinforces that we are headed in the right direction.”
CCISD board president Ken Baliker said Smith deserves this recognition for his ability to lead the district during difficult financial times while improving student performance.
“Smith has deftly managed a $17 million reduction in state funding to CCISD through thoughtful adjustments to programs, services and staffing, and our students continue to thrive,” Baliker said. “The board looks to Smith to lead this productive model for public education in our community.”
Smith will be the Region 4 nominee for the 2012 Texas Superintendent of the Year award, presented by the Texas Association of School Boards.
The state award winner will be announced Friday, Sept. 28 during the 2012 TASA/TASB annual convention in Austin.
