From Lakota's Press Release: 


Matt Miller, superintendent, and CEO of Lakota Local Schools has been named the 2022 EmpowerED Digital Superintendent of the Year by CoSN, a premier association of K-12 education technology leaders, and The School Superintendents Association. Miller received this honor in recognition of his efforts to ensure all students are engaged and inspired learners who have access to equitable and inclusive learning environments.

 

From personalized learning to a range of curricular and extracurricular programs, Miller has provided students with a multitude of opportunities to explore their passions, while embracing educators, administrators, and staff to take the lead in creating innovative learning environments.


 “Matt’s innovative approach to education has benefited our students from the moment he walked through our doors,” said Lynda O’Connor, president of the Lakota Board of Education. “He listens to our families and our teachers, and always puts our students first.

 

“I knew when we hired Matt in 2017 that he would push the bar higher and higher.” O’Connor continued. “He continues to exceed my expectations in creating opportunities for our students. The Board congratulates Matt on this well-deserved recognition.”

 

The EmpowerED Digital Superintendent of the Year Award, sponsored by ClassLink, is given annually to a district leader that has championed the use of technology to enhance teaching and learning. This year, CoSN & AASA are celebrating Miller for his accomplishments in leveraging innovative technologies and expanding resources that enable Lakota students to thrive in the classroom.


 “Technology has been more important than ever, but everything still comes back to the relationships that our teachers have with our kids,” said Miller. 

 

“Matt’s strong commitment to innovation, student, staff, and community voice, professional development and clear visioning have truly been transformative here at Lakota,” said Todd Wesley, Lakota’s chief technology officer. 

 

“I’m so proud to be the superintendent of Lakota Local Schools and I’m humbled to receive this recognition,” said Miller. “There are thousands of things going on in our classrooms every single day that our kids are excelling at; they’re building and they’re creating. This is a team effort and I am grateful for the dedicated educators at Lakota.”
