September 18, 2007
September 18, 2007, Greencastle, Ind. - Wendy (Sanders) Robinson, superintendent of Fort Wayne (Indiana) Community Schools and 1973 graduate of DePauw University, has been named the 2008 District II Superintendent of the Year. The award, presented by the Indiana Association of Public School Superintendents, includes public school systems in ten counties. Dr. Robinson, who has been leading the Fort Wayne school system since 2003, is now a candidate for a national award for top superintendent.
"Winners of the award were chosen by superintendents in their district, taking into consideration the qualifications and accomplishments of their colleagues as well as leadership with limited financial resources," reports today's Fort Wayne Journal Gazette.
An educator for 34 years, Robinson is "president of the Indiana Urban Superintendents Association and is a board member for the Governor’s Education Roundtable," notes the newspaper. "Since taking the position, Robinson has cut $11 million from the FWCS budget and applied a staffing model that allowed the district to devote 68 percent of its expenses to student instruction."
