Pewaukee Schools Superintendent and Stritch alumna JoAnn Sternke has been named Wisconsin's 2013 Superintendent of the Year by the Wisconsin Association of School District Administrators.

According to the WASDA website, the Superintendent of the Year program has become widely acknowledged as the most prestigious honor a school system leader can attain. Applicants are measured by such criteria as successfully meeting the needs of students; personal and organizational communication; professionalism; participation in local community activities; and an understanding of regional, national, and international issues. Nomination letters and letters of recommendation are also considered.

Sternke earned her doctoral degree in leadership at Stritch, and she also serves as a faculty member and site coordinator for the Master of Science in Educational Leadership and District Administrator Licensure programs.

She will represent Wisconsin in the National Superintendent of the Year Program in February 2013.
