Mr. Marenda Honored
as Superintendent of Distinction
The Illinois Association of School Administration (IASA) Starved Rock Division has nominated LaSalle Elementary School District 122 Superintendent, Mr. Daniel F. Marenda for this year's Superintendent of Distinction award. The Starved Rock membership consists of over forty superintendents in LaSalle, Bureau, Marshall and Putnam counties.
Mr. Marenda was one of twenty superintendents from across the state honored at the Governor's Mansion in Springfield on April 21, 2015.
"Public education is facing some of its most difficult times, and that is when leadership is most important, " said Brent Clark, Ph.D., executive director of IASA. "These Superintendents of Distinction were selected by their peers in their regions because of the dedication, commitment and leadership that they have demonstrated, and we are pleased to recognize them for what they do to fulfill the promise of public education for children all over the state."
Beyond his duties within our district, Mr. Marenda represents LaSalle Elementary Schools in a variety of other capacities. He serves on the AASA Governing Board and IASA Board of Directors. He is the treasurer for IVASBO and program director for the LaSalle Rotary Club.
Congratulations to Mr. Marenda!
