The National Rural Education Association recognizes and celebrates Black History Month! We ask that anyone who has resources or stories to share to please send them our way for a potential feature in this newsletter throughout February. We will kick off these features by re-sharing this article from the Daily Yonder about how Black voices are perceived in media, and further reflections on Black History Month from Tyler Owens.

There is a joy in seeing Black voices share their stories, but it’s tempered by the recognition that so many Black stories are still rooted in historical trauma and struggle, Tyler Owens writes in reflections for this Black History Month.

Each year the National School Public Relations Association recognizes up to 25 superintendents as Superintendents to Watch. Honorees are school district leaders who have fewer than five years of experience as a superintendent and who demonstrate dynamic, fast-paced leadership with strong communication at its core. They use communication technology in innovative and effective ways to engage and inform their school communities and to expand two-way communication and outreach efforts.  
Congratulations to the 2022 Superintendents to Watch!
