Superintendent Henry Strom was recently honored for his work at the regional level. Strom was presented the awards during the annual banquet of the ESD105 Superintendent Advisory Council and the Washington Association of School Administrators (WASA) South-Central Region held in Yakima.
Strom was presented the WASA Award of Merit for his effective educational leadership at the regional level and for significant contributions to WASA’s work throughout the state. Strom has served as the WASA South-Central Region president throughout the 2018-2019 school year. One of the initiatives Strom brought to the forefront during his tenure was the importance of self-care.
“I know [this theme] has resonated with others in our region, and I believe it has had a positive impact overall,” said WASA Assistant Executive Director Helene Paroff. “While there are many examples of Henry’s leadership leaving a positive mark in the region, I believe this example was one that many could identify with.”
During the event, Strom was also presented with a plaque to commemorate his term as WASA South-Central Region president. The award was presented to him by past president Selah Superintendent Shane Backlund.
