2011 Winner - Mark Burrows

Mark Burrows -- Superintendent, Morrow County School District

Mr. Burrows has a long, distinguished career in education. A former teacher and contractor, he began his administrative career in 1997 as an elementary principal in John Day, where his school achieved some of the top marks in the state. He assumed his current position as superintendent of the Morrow County School District in 2004 and promptly solidified a district in transition. He restored trust in the superintendency and worked with his board to provide a vision for the district focused on increased student achievement. He led his district to a successful local option levy, despite the declining economy in 2009. Mr. Burrows is known as a collaborative team-player who is not afraid to make difficult decisions. He is an “outside the box” thinker who has developed innovative teacher and administrative evaluation systems. He is retiring this year and his presence and strong leadership will be sorely missed in the future.
