Williamson County Schools Superintendent Dr. Mike Looney will represent Tennessee in the National Superintendent of the Year Award Program.
Looney was named the 2016 Tennessee Superintendent of the Year September 13 at the Tennessee Organization of School Superintendents (TOSS) Conference in Gatlinburg.
“I am honored to represent my colleagues as the 2016 Tennessee Superintendent of the Year and look forward to advocating for all of Tennessee’s schools in the year ahead,” said Looney. “This recognition is not really about me. Rather, it is an affirmation that our community’s collective commitment to support students, teachers and school leaders is working and a sound investment.”
Nominees for the award are chosen based in part on the following criteria: creativity in successfully meeting the needs of students in his or her school system, strength in both personal and organizational communication, constant improvement of administrative knowledge and skills and an active participation in local activities.
The 2016 National Superintendent of the Year will be announced in February.
