JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — An education group has announced its pick for Missouri’s top school superintendent.
The Missouri Association of School Administrators says the honor goes to Terry Adams, who leads eastern Missouri’s Wentzville R-IV School District Superintendent. The announcement was made during the association’s recent fall conference.
Adams will represent Missouri in the National Superintendent of the Year program conducted by the American Association of School Administrators. The honor also brings a $500 scholarship to a student in his district.
Under Adams’ leadership, the Wentzville district has done everything from building new schools to adding full-day kindergarten.
He has also been superintendent in the Rolla Public School District, the Central R-III School District and the Arcadia Valley R-II School District.
