Superintendent Clinton receives Distinction award
Reginald L. Clinton, superintendent of Beardstown, has been named the 2016 Superintendent of Distinction by his colleagues in the Two Rivers Region of the Illinois Association of School Administrators (IASA). Clinton will be honored at an awards luncheon April 21 in Springfield.
State Superintendent Dr. Tony Smith is the featured speaker at the luncheon that will honor 21 IASA regional Superintendents of Distinction. “I was honored to receive this nomination and selection from my colleagues. I learned early on that you are only as good as the people who surround you. To be selected by my colleagues, whom I trust and value for their knowledge and support, is very humbling,” said Clinton, who has been an educator for 30 years, serving as teacher, coach and administer before becoming superintendent of the Beardstown district in 2010. “This is an honor that is not something that I did; it is something that everyone I have ever worked with shares a part of.”
