“I am truly humbled to receive this honor, which represents all the talent, hard work and commitment of our staff, school leaders, Board of Education, students and families throughout our District,” said Mayfield.

“Dr. Mayfield is an exemplary superintendent and a great representative of the high quality of district leadership that exists in school systems across Wisconsin,” said Jon Bales, Executive Director of WASDA. “We are very pleased to recognize his outstanding work through the Superintendent of the Year award.”
