CENTER – The Colorado Association of School Executives (CASBE) named George Welsh, the superintendent from the Valley’s Center Consolidated School District, Colorado’s Superintendent of the Year.

“George is being honored as our Superintendent of the Year for his visionary leadership, which has transformed a low-performing school district with a high rate of people living in poverty into a model example of how resources, leadership and determination can make the difference in the lives of Colorado’s young scholars,” CASE Executive Director Bruce Caughey said.

Welsh began his work as Center’s superintendent in 1997. Over the past 15 years, Center Schools have seen unprecedented jumps in student achievement. Under Welsh’s stewardship, graduation rates at Center High School increased from 33 percent in 1996 to 93 percent in 2012, with dropout rates dropping by more than 10 percent over the same period.
