SPOA represents members at the National Conference on Education

Updated: Feb 17, 2023

Did you know that all member companies were represented at the National Conference on Education, in San Antonio, Texas, hosted by The American Association of School Administrators (AASA). SPOA was at the conference floor promoting member companies and discussing standards, copyright protections, and best practices with thousands of district superintendents.

While at the conference, Brighton Central School District Superintendent Kevin McGowan was named the 2023 National Superintendent of the Year by The School Superintendents Association, announced at the national conference.

“The work that’s happening in our district for children is approaching a place where people are noticing the gaps we’ve closed for children, the work that’s gone into that and the leadership that’s been provided to support each child and each family,” McGowan said when he was nominated in January. “This is really such a recognition of that work.”

Along with his role in Brighton, McGowan is also the president of the New York State Council of School Superintendents.

The other National Superintendent of the Year finalists were:

  • PJ Caposey, Meridian Community Unit School District #223, Stillman Valley, Ill.

  • Matthew Hillmann, Northfield Public Schools, ISD 659, Northfield, Minn.

  • Trent North, Douglas County School System, Douglasville, Ga.
