Bay City, Texas Independent School District Superintendent Keith A. Brown, a 1992 alumnus of MNU, with a degree in physical education, has been named the ESC Region III Superintendent of the Year (SOTY). As a regional winner, he is now eligible for the state SOTY award. Sponsored by the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB), the SOTY program has recognized exemplary superintendents for excellence and achievement in educational leadership since 1984.

Candidates are chosen for their strong leadership skills, dedication to improving educational quality, ability to build effective employee relations, student performance, and commitment to public involvement in education. Superintendents from any of Texas' 1,031 local school districts are eligible for nomination by their school boards. Local nominees are submitted to a regional selection committee, which chooses one nominee to send to the state selection committee.

The state committee will interview regional winners in Austin on August 23-24 and select five state finalists. The Superintendent of the Year will be announced September 28 at the TASA/TASB Convention in Dallas.

Editor's note: As of Aug. 26, 2013, Brown was named one of five state finalists for the annual Superintendent of the Year (SOTY) award sponsored by the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB).
