July 12, 2011 – Corpus Christi, Texas
The Education Service Center, Region 2, is pleased to announce that Mr. Scott Elliff, Superintendent of Corpus Christi Independent School District, was honored with the 2011 Regional Superintendent of the Year Award. This annual award, sponsored by the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB), honors public school district superintendents and has recognized exemplary superintendents for excellence and achievement in educational leadership since 1984.
Candidates are chosen for their strong leadership skills, dedication to improving educational quality, ability to build effective employee relations, student performance, and commitment to public involvement in education. Superintendents from any of Region 2’s local school districts are eligible for nomination by their school boards. Local nominees are submitted to a regional selection committee, which chooses one nominee to send to the state selection committee. The state committee will interview regional winners in August in Austin and select five state finalists. The Superintendent of the Year will be announced October 1 at the TASA/TASB Convention in Austin.
The ESC-2 hosted a press conference to publically recognize Mr. Elliff for his prestigious award. The press conference was held on Thursday, July 14, at 9:30 a.m. at the ESC-2 facility at 209 N. Water Street in downtown Corpus Christi.
