Superintendent narrowly misses national honor

Although she was named one of four finalists, Renton School District Superintendent Mary Alice Heuschel did not receive the award for Superintendent of the Year award for 2010.

The award was announced at the American Association of School Administrators’ annual conference in Denver, Colo., Feb. 17. The AASA’s highest honor went to Marc Johnson of the Sanger School District, southeast of Fresno, Calif.

Last November, Washington Association of School Administrators named Heuschel the superintendent of the year for the state. In December, the AASA named her a finalist for its highest honor.

Zimmer and Chakravarty will be notified this spring if they are to receive scholarships.
