Former ESS winner wins Administrator Of The Year
“It’s an honor to serve as the leader of a school that has students that look like me. And more importantly, students that have a similar background or experience. You have the empathy piece because you understand.”
-Manuel Nunez, Seaside Middle School, ACSA Region 10
Manny Nuñez says he was shocked after learning he was the recipient of ACSA’s 2018 Middle Grades Principal of the Year Award. In fact, he is the first person to win both the Every Student Succeeding scholarship and Administrator of the Year.
“I came to this country with nothing,” Nuñez said. “Not even the language. And not even with documents. Use your story as a motivation to inspire others. But also, as a reminder of how far you’ve come. And how far you still have to go.”
