For 150 years, this great organization has brought together groups of thought leaders who have helped change the face of public education through dialogue at the national level. AASA has given my district, and other small school districts like mine, opportunities to broaden academic capabilities and achievement. That’s one of the reasons why I am so proud to be a member.

We need our voices to be heard. AASA is the organization that will continue to lead us into the future. School district leaders in every state in this nation owe a debt of gratitude to AASA.

AASA has withstood the test of time and is rich in history. As a superintendent, having the history at your fingertips is highly important as we make efforts to create solid and secure pathways for our students.
