Highline Superintendent Susan Enfield is one of three superintendents who are finalists for the 2020 Women in School Leadership Award. The award is given annually by AASA, The School Superintendents Association.
The awards recognize the exceptional leadership of active, front-line female administrators who are making a difference in the lives of students every day and pay tribute to the talent, creativity and vision of outstanding women educational administrators in the nation’s public schools, according to AASA.
“True leadership--the kind that energizes and excites people--is a very rare quality. Susan Enfield is the type of leader who not only attracts quality people, but causes those around her to rise to heights they had not imagined,” said Highline School Board President Bernie Dorsey.
Candidates are judged on leadership in meeting the learning needs of students, personal and organizational communication strength, constant professional improvement of knowledge and skills, and active community involvement.
Award winners will be announced in February at the AASA national conference in San Diego.
