Dr. Juan I. Martinez, Clint ISD Superintendent, was named the Region 19 Superintendent of the Year by the Education Service Center for Region 19 earlier this month.
“The most concise way to convey his worthiness for this award would be that Dr. Martinez goes the extra mile for our students. Every decision, action, and initiative has them in mind,” said James R. Pendell, Clint ISD Board President.
Dr. Martinez has been with Clint ISD as Superintendent of Schools since 2013. He began his career in education as a teacher in 1994. He went on to become an Assistant Principal, Principal, Director of Personnel and Chief Human Resources Officer before leading Clint ISD.
Dr. Martinez, who holds a Bachelor of Administration in Computer Information Systems and a Masters in School Administration, earned his Doctor of Education from the University of Texas at El Paso in 2017.
The TASB Superintendent of the Year Award honors outstanding administrators for achievement and excellence in public school administration. Honorees are leaders who exhibit exemplary and visionary leadership toward improving student performance. They are chosen for their strong leadership skills, dedication to improving the quality of education in their Districts, and commitment to public support and involvement in education.
Dr. Martinez will represent Clint ISD and the Region for the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) State Superintendent of the Year Award in August and September at the 2018 TASA/TASB Convention.
