Andrew Kim named 2018 Texas PTA Superintendent of the Year
Each year, the Texas PTA recognizes a handful of outstanding educators who exemplify its mission of making every child’s potential a reality. This year, Comal ISD’s Andrew Kim was named the 2018 Texas PTA Superintendent of the Year for his dedication to every student’s education.
The announcement was made by the Texas PTA earlier this month, and Kim was presented the award this past weekend at LAUNCH 2018 in Dallas. LAUNCH is an annual conference for Texas PTA members.
One of Kim’s nine nominations read, “He listens. He teaches. He empowers. I've never met a more passionate superintendent who stays in touch with the parents as much as Mr. Kim."
Shirley Koop, President of Comal ISD’s Council of PTAs, presented Kim with this recognition.
“Mr. Andrew Kim came to Comal ISD six years ago bringing an innovative and a sincere approach to education,” Koop said. “He immediately began building a relationship with our Council of PTAs and shared his vision of making our district a community where every student succeeds.”
Kim attributed this recognition to the great relationship Comal ISD has with its PTAs across the district. In fact, Comal ISD boasts a 100 percent PTA district, with every campus having a PTA unit, and every PTA achieved a membership increase this year earning the Council the first-ever Diamond award by the Texas PTA.
“The Comal Independent School District is successful because of the relationship with our PTAs,” Kim said. “This relationship is very precious to us. I want to thank our PTA Council and all of our PTAs and members. Not only do you make me a better educator, but more importantly, a better person.”
