The Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) announced the recipients of the 2020 Johnny L. Veselka Scholarship, which is awarded each year to outstanding doctoral students pursuing careers in educational leadership, especially the superintendency.

Lamar CISD Chief of Staff Mike Rockwood is one of the two recipients. He will be awarded a $2,500 scholarship during the 2020 TASA Midwinter Conference in January. Rockwood is pursuing a doctorate in educational leadership from Baylor University. 

“I aspire to be a superintendent because I strongly believe in the power of public education to change lives and I am passionate about shaping our future,” he wrote. “I believe a superintendent should remove obstacles, connect people, and protect students. I have chosen the superintendency as a career because our children represent so much hope and positivity for a future that is yet to be discovered.”
