Congratulations to WOU alum Gustavo Balderas ’90 was just named the 2020 National Superintendent of the Year! This significant recognition speaks to his dedication to Oregon’s youth. Balderas is the son of a migrant family from Mexico who settled in Oregon.
Balderas works for the Eugene School District and he’s the second WOU alum to earn this national honor. Matt Utterback was named National Superintendent of the Year in 2017.
This honor is given by the American Association of School Administrators and the School Superintendents Association. Balderas was recognized at the organization’s national conference in San Diego last night.
