Dr. Joyce Stewart Earns Most Effective Administrator Award

Congratulations to Dr. Joyce Stewart,  as she was honored with the Robert J. Handy Most Effective Administrator Award, sponsored by PEMCO Insurance and WASA.

A peer committee selects the recipients from nominations that describe how each nominee is taking part in realizing the nine characteristics of high performing schools/districts as defined by research from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Established in 2002, these awards recognize outstanding Washington public school administrators. Dr. Joyce Stewart was selected as a highly effective superintendent for large districts (over 2,000 students).

A $10,000 award will be equally divided among the three winners (small, medium, & large districts).  Dr. Joyce Stewart will donate her award to the Everett Music4Life Booster Club. Music4Life repurposes donated musical instruments and gives them to Everett
Public Schools for students who may not be able to afford one.
