GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Dr. Tahira Dupree-Chase, Superintendent of the Greenburgh Central School District, has been named among the country’s top 25 Superintendents to Watch in 2015-16 by the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA).
She was one of only two New York State superintendents recognized by NSPRA. The honor was announced by NSPRA this week, and the organization said Dr. Chase was chosen for “demonstrating dynamic leadership with a strong emphasis on communication.”
This is the first time NSPRA has recognized new superintendents with fewer than five years of experience as a superintendent. Dr. Dupree-Chase has been Superintendent in Greenburgh for less than a year.
“These superintendents are recognized for using dynamic, fast-paced leadership with strong communication at its core,” said NSPRA in announcing the 25 winners. “They engage and inform their school communities with new communication technology tools combined with tried-and-true techniques.”
As part of the award, which also was sponsored by the educational technology company SchoolMessenger, Dr. Chase will be profiled in an NSPRA newsletter, which is circulated nationally to organization members, and receive an award certificate. She has also been invited to attend NSPRA’s national Seminar and superintendents’ luncheon, which will be held in Chicago in July.
