USD 333 Concordia Superintendent Quentin Breese was recognized last week at the Kansas Association of School Boards Annual Conference in Kansas City for completing his participation in the Leadership for Tomorrow Class of 2018.

Superintendent Breese was chosen for participation through an application process on the basis of individual leadership in public education and participation in activities that promote effective governance and raise student achievement.

Through five two-day sessions held around the state, the Kansas Association of School Boards Leadership for Tomorrow program creates a greater understanding of the Kansas public education system and provides opportunities to develop leadership skills for effective governance and raising student achievement.

The program began in 2005, and in the past 13 years more than 240 school leaders have completed the program.

The 2018 schedule included visits to McPherson and Twin Valley schools in March; Liberal and Hugoton schools in May; Manhattan school district in July; Wellington and Wichita schools in September; and Kansas City-area schools in late November. The final session was held during the Kansas Association of School Boards Annual Conference.

Members include governing boards for unified school districts, community colleges, area vocational-technical schools and cooperatives, interlocals and regional service centers.
