Superintendent of the Year

Oklahoma City, OK – The superintendent of the Newcastle Public School District has been named the 2011 Oklahoma Superintendent of the Year.

The Oklahoma Association of School Administrators says Robert Everett was chosen from superintendent finalists from across the state, and will be recognized at the Annual Summer Conference set for June 8-10. It's hosted by the Cooperative Council for Oklahoma School Administration.

Everett has been a superintendent for the past 11 years and has 34 years of experience in education. He was an assistant superintendent at Woodward Public Schools from 1998-2000, and was a principal at Mustang High School from 1993-1998.

Association officials say to be chosen as a recipient, the selection committee recognizes an individual who represents strong moral values; is a successful, top-level education administrator and inspires and motivates people.
