NEISD Superintendent getting national recognition

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — The National School Public Relations Association is naming Dr. Sean Maika, NEISD Superintendent of Schools as a 2022 Superintendent to Watch.

In a release Thursday, NSPRA explains that the Superintendent to Watch honor goes to school district leaders with fewer than five years of experience who demonstrate dynamic, fast-paced leadership with strong communication at its core.

Dr. Maika is one of 25 superintendents nationwide who was selected for this honor, which recognizes his innovative and effective use of technology to engage and inform the school community, and to expand two-way communication and outreach efforts.

“This year’s honorees understand just how important effective communication is in building trust and relationships with families, employees, students and community members in their districts,” said NSPRA Executive Director Barbara M. Hunter, APR. “These emerging leaders have proven to be dedicated champions of innovative communication efforts to advance their districts’ success.”

NSPRA says it had a record number of nominations this year with many exceptional candidates, making the selection process very competitive.
