Carroll ISD Superintendent Dr. David Faltys has been nominated for a national award.
Dr. Faltys is a candidate for the Bob Grossman Leadership in School Communications Award given by the National School Public Relations Association. He is one of just 30 superintendents in the nation to be nominated for the award. The NSPRA Awards selection committee will meet next week to determine a winner.
The award is named for Robert L. Grossman, ASPR, who served as president of the National School Public Relations Association in 1990-91.
During his 23-year career, Bob served as a public relations professional and strategic advisor for school districts and educational agencies in Pennsylvania, Ohio, California, Maryland and Colorado, and as a consultant to districts and agencies across the United States.
Grossman was known for his creative and strategic public relations and communication practices and was in the vanguard of those who recognized that marketing schools was vital in an era of choice. He believed strongly that the support and commitment of superintendents and top leadership is vital to an effective communication program and he worked to build understanding of the role of the school public relations professional and elevate communication to a management function.
The winner will be announced later this month. The award recognizes superintendents for their ongoing support and attention to strategic and effective communications.
More than 40 parents, Trustees, students and employees in the community shared letters of endorsement for Dr. Faltys’ nomination.
