Celebrating our Region 10 Superintendent of the Year!
The Superintendent of the Year award honors our outstanding administrators who exhibit exemplary and visionary leadership toward improving student performance. Chosen for strong leadership skills, dedication to improving the quality of education in their districts, here’s what some of the board members shared in their nomination of this year’s regional winner.
2021 Region 10 Superintendent of the Year
Dr. Michael Hinojosa
“Over a two-year period in which tornadoes destroyed several schools, the pandemic turned education upside down, and a historic snowstorm left more than half the district’s 230 schools with burst pipes and flood damage, all eyes were on leadership. Dr. Hinojosa and his team demonstrated responsive and responsible management that allowed us to surmount these challenges.”

The Texas Association of School Administrators created the School Board Awards Program in 1971 to recognize school boards whose dedication and ethical service have made a positive impact on the schoolchildren of Texas.
