Aldine’s Kujawa finalist for Texas Superintendent of the Year

The Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) selected Aldine ISD Superintendent Nadine Kujawa as one of five finalists for the prestigious Texas Superintendent of the Year award. TASB released the names of the five finalists on Monday, Aug. 21.
Mrs. Kujawa, the Region 4 Superintendent of the Year, was one of 16 superintendents from across Texas who were interviewed by TASB’s State Selection Committee Aug. 18-19 in Austin. The committee then selected Mrs. Kujawa, along with Daniel King of Hidalgo ISD, Vivian Baker of Belton ISD, Sylvester Perez of San Marcos ISD and John Folks of Northside ISD, as the five finalists who will vie for the coveted Superintendent of the Year Award at the TASB/TASA (Texas Association of School Administrators) annual conference, slated Oct. 6-8 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.
Mrs. Kujawa, along with the four other finalists, will be interviewed on Friday, Oct. 6. The winner will be announced on Sunday, Oct. 8 at the third general session.
“This is truly a wonderful honor and I am humbled by it,” Mrs. Kujawa said. “But I do not consider this an individual honor, but one that must be shared with our board, and our entire staff of dedicated administrators, principals and teachers. We are a team that works well together to meet the needs of our students.”
Mrs. Kujawa and her fellow finalists were chosen for their strong leadership skills, dedication to improving educational quality, the ability to build effective employee relations, student performance, and commitment to public involvement in education.
Dr. Bill McKinney, executive director of Region 4, said Mrs. Kujawa’s selection as a finalist was well deserved.
“Nadine Kujawa has proven repeatedly during her professional career and her tenure at Aldine that she possesses the vision, the talent, the commitment and the leadership to work successfully with others and to make those decisions that truly are best for our children,” he said. “As a very involved member of the community, Mrs. Kujawa has a special commitment to ensuring that all students succeed.”
