Indian Valley Superintendent Recognized with Exemplary Leadership Award

Dr. Ira Wentworth, superintendent of Indian Valley Local Schools, was recently recognized by the Buckeye Association of School Administrators (BASA) with an Exemplary Leadership Award.  BASA recognized leaders from each of their 10 regions of Ohio.  Wentworth was nominated by colleagues for the Region 7 award. 


Wentworth was first presented the award at the BASA Fall Conference on October 4 in Columbus, Ohio.  More recently, BASA Executive Director, Dr. David Axner, visited the Indian Valley Local Schools Board of Education meeting on October 17 to present the award.  


Criteria for selection includes professional work at both the local and state level to advance opportunities for students and the education profession.  Since 2013, Wentworth has served on multiple regional and state education committees, has testified to committees of the Ohio Senate and Ohio House of Representatives regarding educational legislative issues, and has served on various local committees and boards for the advancement of local initiatives.


Since 1953, BASA has served Ohio school district leaders and students by providing leadership in securing educational opportunities for students, advancing the interest of education in Ohio, and by professionally developing school leaders for these purposes.
