Dr. Thomas Tucker Named Ohio Superintendent of the Year

Dr. Thomas Tucker, Princeton City Schools, Ohio Superintendent of the Year

January 12, 2016

The Buckeye Association of School Administrators (BASA) has named Princeton City School District Superintendent, Thomas S. Tucker, Ph.D., the 2016 Ohio Superintendent of the Year.

According to BASA Executive Director, Kirk Hamilton, Ph.D., Tucker was selected by an esteemed panel of former Ohio Superintendent of the Year awardees.  The panel evaluated each nominee based on the candidate’s body of work and experience, but specifically the candidates were measured against the following criteria: Leadership for Learning, Communication, Professionalism and Community Involvement.

Tucker was nominated by Ms. Monica Green, a parent and small business owner in Worthington and Dr. Bobby Moore, Senior Director at Battelle for Kids.  Before coming to the Princeton City Schools this year, Dr. Tucker was the superintendent at the Worthington Schools in central Ohio.

“Thomas’s educational background as a distinguished teacher, coach, award winning principal and superintendent, and mentor to educational leaders across the state, as well as his international educational experience made him a tremendous asset to our community during his tenure in the Worthington City School District,” Green said of Tucker.

Moore stated, “Dr. Tucker is one of only a handful of educators in the state who has led both a building and district to the highest rating by the State Department of Education and a ranking in the top ten percent for growth. Dr. Tucker’s teams are able to accomplish feats like this because of his ability to set ambitious goals, empower those around him, and continually reflect and evaluate on the progress of those goals.”

On selecting Tucker for the award, Hamilton remarked, “Dr. Tucker’s passion for what he does has made him a highly effective superintendent. He has great vision and works hard. He is not afraid to take on the tough issues. Thomas is a great person and a committed educational leader. Princeton City School District will benefit from his strong sense of mission.”
