Bradley County Schools Director Johnny McDaniel has been selected to receive the honor for 2013. McDaniel will represent Tennessee in the National Superintendent of the Year Award. The American Association of Administrators (AASA) and Service Masters sponsor the National Superintendent of the Year Award that will be presented at the AASA National Conference on Education.
McDaniel is beginning his fifth year at the helm of Bradley County Schools. He earned his Bachelors degree in Social Science at Lee University, and his Masters in Education and Counseling from Florida Atlantic University.
