Laurel Superintendent Awarded Superintendent Of The Year

Posted: Updated:

LAUREL, Miss. - The superintendent of Laurel Public Schools is awarded the title of the state's superintendent of the year.

"I'm just simply honored," said Dr. Chuck Benigo, superintendent of Laurel Public Schools. "This is a reflection of the wonderful 3,000 students we have and over 400 staff members who work tirelessly for the children of Laurel."

The award comes from the Mississippi Association of School Administrators.

Benigo will also get the chance to compete on the national level against other superintendents chosen from other states.

He said he believes Laurel was chosen because of all of the progress they have made over the last few years.

Teachers and students have worked hard to improve test scores district wide.
