| Oklahoma City, OK – Geromy Schrick, Executive Director of Technology for Mustang Public Schools, has been named the 2015 District #14 Assistant Superintendent /Central Office Administrator of the Year by the Oklahoma Association of School Administrators (OASA).
Schrick is one of 20 assistant superintendents and central office administrators selected by their peers for this award from across the state. These administrators, and the district superintendent finalists, were honored by colleagues at the OASA awards banquet on Wednesday, June 10 on the eve of the annual Cooperative Council for Oklahoma School Administration (CCOSA) Summer Conference. The conference was held June 11-12 at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Convention Center in Norman.
“On behalf of all CCOSA members I would like to congratulate Mr. Schrick for being selected by his peer’s as an OASA district winner,” Steven Crawford, Executive Director of OASA stated. “I am amazed by the quality of these great school leaders and the
respect they have been given for the exceptional work they perform with Oklahoma’s public school children,” Crawford added.
Schrick has been the Executive Director of Technology for Mustang Public Schools since 2003, following three years as a Network Manager for the district. He began his education career as an eighth grade science teacher and coach for Mustang Public Schools.
Upon learning of this award Schrick said, “Education has always been my calling, I wanted nothing more than to teach and coach young kids from the time I was in high school thanks to some great teachers that I was fortunate to have. I never thought I would become an administrator of any kind. Being in the classroom was where I belonged. I was given the opportunity to move into a district administration role as the network manager for Mustang Public Schools after only five years in the classroom when I was encouraged by my principal at Mustang North Middle School, Mr. Ralph Smith, to apply for the job. I did not have the skills to run a network of computers, but I did have the support from the administrators hiring me. Dr. Rhonda White and Mr. Karl Springer gave me all the tools and support that a person in my position needed to be successful in a new endeavor. I have tried over the past 15 years in my position as Director of Technology to pay forward all of the opportunities that were given to me. As a director in Mustang Public Schools I have been able to continue to reach students with implementation of technology that enables the staff to teach in new ways and the students to learn in an ever evolving world.” He went on to say, “I am humbled by this nomination and grateful to have served my district for the past 20 years. I look forward to many more years of service to Mustang Public Schools and to continue to pay it forward at every opportunity.”
Schrick enjoys playing indoor soccer, wood working, and volunteers as a little league soccer coach.
