Superintendent of Altus Public Schools is to be honored at a state function by Oklahoma Association of School Administrators or OASA.
Roger Hill is one of 20 superintendents selected by his peers from across the state. These administrators, and the District Assistant Superintendent and Central Office Administrator finalists, will be honored by colleagues at the OASA awards banquet Wednesday on the eve of the annual Cooperative Council for Oklahoma School Administration or CCOSA Summer Conference.
The conference will be June 9-10 at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Convention Center in Norman.
“We congratulate Superintendent Hill for being selected by his colleagues as the outstanding superintendent in their OASA district,” said Dr. Pam Deering, executive director of OASA. “It is an honor to be nominated and selected by your peers for your leadership, service and contributions to the profession.”
Hill has been a public school educator for more than 35 years and an administrator for most of his career. He has been a superintendent since 1997 and served in Altus since 2013.
“It’s truly an honor to have been selected by my colleagues to represent OASA as District 13 Superintendent of the Year,” Hill said when he learned of the selection. “This award is a reflection of the overall quality of Altus Public Schools and the staff we have. Our leadership team is absolutely amazing and our focus has always been students first. It’s an incredible place to work and I am so proud to be a small part of our success at Altus Public Schools.”
Winners from each of the OASA districts are eligible to submit an application for the Oklahoma Superintendent of the Year. They must meet certain criteria that includes successful experiences in the top administration position, a sound, dynamic and realistic philosophy of education, the ability to motivate and inspire people, support and recognize others, professional and personal growth, the ability to speak for education and contributions to educational administration.
The OASA is under the umbrella of the CCOSA, an incorporated, nonprofit organization serving more than 2,800 superintendents, assistant superintendents, central office administrators, principals and special education directors.
