Johnson named finalist for Superintendent of the Year


Hamilton County Schools superintendent Bryan Johnson is a finalist for 2021 National Superintendent of the Year. The School Superintendents Association named Johnson and three other superintendents across the U.S. as finalists.

The SSA is a professional organization that serves more than 13,000 educational leaders and recognizes the talent as well as vision of public school leaders annually through its National Superintendent of the Year program.

The selection criteria for the award includes learning leadership, communication, professionalism and community involvement.

Earlier this year, the Tennessee Organization of School Superintendents selected Johnson as the 2021 Tennessee Superintendent of the Year.

“I’m honored to be considered for National Superintendent of the Year,” Johnson says. “This recognition isn’t about my work but the collective work of our school board, teachers, staff, parents and community, who have all been laser-focused on serving children.

“Despite the overwhelming obstacles presented by the global pandemic, our team hasn’t wavered from its commitment to educational excellence, and I’m grateful to serve alongside these heroes.”

The final interviews and news conference for National Superintendent of the Year will take place Jan. 8. The winner will be announced at the Virtual National Conference on Education Feb. 18.
