Poth native finalist for Superintendent of the Year
Ysleta Independent School District (ISD) Superintendent Michael Zolkoski has been named as one of five finalists for the prestigious Texas Superintendent of the Year award for 2012.
This program has honored outstanding Texas administrators for achievement and excellence in public school administration since 1984. The State Selection Committee for the 2012 program met Aug. 24-25 in Austin to interview all regional winners.
Zolkoski has more than 25 years’ experience as a superintendent, leading school districts in Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas -- including Judson ISD in San Antonio.
Zolkoski received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Southwest Texas State University and has doctorate degrees from the University of Texas at Austin and California Coast University.
Candidates are chosen for their strong leadership skills, dedication to improving the quality of education in their school district, involvement in education, and commitment to public support.
All regional winners, state finalists, and the state winner will be announced Friday, Sept. 28, at the annual Texas Association of School Boards/Texas Association of School Administrators Convention in Austin.
Zolkoski is the son of Ed and Marilyn Zolkoski of Poth, and is a graduate of Poth High School.
