CCSD superintendent now finalist for national award
Philip D. Lanoue, Clarke County School District's superintendent, is one of four finalists for the 2015 National Superintendent of the Year. The announcement comes on the heels of Lanoue named the Georgia Superintendent of the Year earlier in December.
The national award winner will be announced during the annual conference of AASA, the School Superintendents Association, Feb. 26-28 in San Diego, California.
Other finalists are MaryEllen Elia of Hillsborough County Public Schools in Tampa, Florida; Patrick Murphy of Arlington Public Schools in Arlington, Va.; and Patrice Pujol of Ascension Public Schools in Donaldson, Louisiana.
"These individuals are dedicated to ensuring that students in their school systems receive the best education possible," said Daniel A. Domenech, executive director of AASA, in a news release. "We look forward to honoring these outstanding superintendents as well as all of the state superintendents of the year."
Lanoue was named Georgia Superintendent of the Year earlier in December at the Georgia School Boards Association/Georgia School Superintendents Association annual conference.
