CCSD superintendent recognized as Colorado Superintendent of the Year

Dr. Harry Bull, superintendent of Cherry Creek Schools, was described as a champion of children and an advocate for quality education across the state of Colorado, during a presentation made just prior to the Cherry Creek Schools Board of Education meeting held Dec. 12 at Endeavor Academy.

“That's the man who leads us. He's making a difference every day he goes to work,” said Brent Curtice, superintendent of the Garfield RE2 School District, and a member of the Colorado Association of School Executives (CASE).

Earlier this fall, a CASE committee named Bull as the 2017 honoree because of his commitment to excellence for all students, his tireless advocacy work and his leadership in the fight for adequate school funding across the state.

It’s because of his commitment, his willingness to not take the easy road, his willingness to take things head-on and deal with them in a straightforward manner.”

Owen also said that Bull is highly regarded by superintendents across the state, including those in rural districts where the challenges are much different than they are in urban areas.

“To hear him talk about his support for rural educators is just outstanding,” Owen added.

Bull will now represent Colorado in the 2017 American Association of School Administrators (AASA) National Superintendent of the Year program. 499 Harry and Board.jpg
