Neenah Joint School District Superintendent Dr. Mary Pfeiffer

Neenah Joint School District Superintendent Dr. Mary Pfeiffer has received statewide recognition for her leadership.

The Wisconsin Association of School District Administrators recently named Dr. Pfeiffer the Wisconsin Superintendent of the Year. Pfeiffer has been superintendent of the district since 2009, and according to a news release from the district, is credited with helping the district grow its technological resources to have one-to-one technology in place since 2017. The district also has mental health services available across all schools, and is the only Wisconsin district recognized as a Platinum Level Wellness Workplace.
“This award is truly a recognition of our entire district and what we have accomplished together,” Dr. Pfeiffer said in the news release. “I feel so thankful to be a part of a community that is incredibly supportive of education. Our top-notch staff and families continue to support the high-quality education and services our children need to thrive. Our larger community recently united in passing a referendum that will change the future of our district for decades. This honor is truly a ‘Neenah with Pride’ moment for all of us to share.”
Applicants to WASDA’s Superintendent of the Year program are measured on criteria that include successfully meeting the needs of students, personal and organizational communication, professionalism, participation in local community activities and an understanding of regional, national and international issues.
Congratulations, Mary, on a well-deserved honor, and thank you for all you do for Wisconsin students!
