Congratulations go to Ray Ginter, assistant principal at Rowan County Senior High School, for being named the recipient of the 2012 Kentucky Association of School Administrators/Jostens Tomorrow’s Leader Scholarship. Ginter was recognized for his achievement at the 2012 KASA conference, which was held at the Galt House in Louisville, Kentucky in July.
The Tomorrow’s Leader Scholarship is open to KASA members and offers payment for two three-hour summer courses, textbook reimbursement, and a $3,000 travel stipend. Ginter used the stipend to help pay the travel portion for one of his courses that he has been taking as he continues his work toward his doctorate. The course, EDD 876 (Directed Doctoral Study) gave students the opportunity to travel to Oxford, England for international field experience.
“The Tomorrow’s Leader Scholarship gave me the opportunity continue my doctoral work and learn about the similarities and differences that the United States and other countries have in bridging barriers to education,” said Ginter. “In sharing strategies with educators from other countries, we become an ‘international professional community of learners’ dedicated to giving students the best possible educational experience.”
“The highlight of the KASA conference had to have been seeing Ray Ginter being presented with the 2012 KASA Tomorrow’s Leader Scholarship Award,” said Superintendent Marvin Moore. “He has been working hard to complete his doctorate, and it is always gratifying when you are recognized for your efforts.”
