ALDINE – Mrs. Nadine Kujawa, who was the first-ever female superintendent in the history of Aldine ISD, has passed away. Mrs. Kujawa, 80, passed away on Monday, Nov. 8.
Mrs. Kujawa devoted 42 years to Aldine ISD and served in a number of roles. She was a graduate of Aldine High School (the Class of 1959) and was the first Aldine ISD graduate to serve as superintendent.
“Our hearts go out to the Kujawa family with the passing of a true legend,” said Aldine ISD Superintendent Dr. LaTonya M. Goffney. “Mrs. Kujawa was a trailblazer for so many of us in education. She was well-respected across the state and committed her entire professional career to the students and staff of Aldine ISD. She was a proud graduate of Aldine High School. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her husband Harry and her daughters Christine and Karen, her grandchildren and her extended family.”
Mrs. Kujawa succeeded Superintendent M.B. “Sonny” Donaldson in 2001 and served as the district’s leader until her retirement in May of 2007.
She began her teaching career in AISD in 1962 as a second-grade teacher at Oleson Elementary School.
