Superintendent Dr. Steve Noble named a finalist for Kansas Superintendent of the Year

Dr. Steve Noble, Superintendent of Seaman Schools, was announced as a finalist for the 2019 KSSA Superintendent of the Year, along with Glenn Suppes from USD 400. Dr. Noble had this to say in response to the exciting news.

"My mother always told me that public education is too important an endeavor to not love it while you’re working it. I love my job and our great profession. I am completely humbled by this news and frankly, uncomfortable with it; however, I quickly remember that this recognition isn't about me at all--it’s about our kids, teachers, and the entire Seaman family under the visionary leadership of our board of education.

"I've had the privilege of working for amazing board members and have been so fortunate to lead two school districts who were outstanding long before my arrival and will remain top districts after I’m gone.

"I’m grateful to be working for a board of education that sets the vision and mission in which I believe, and to work with teachers, staff, and community in helping each student maximize their talents and aspirations.

"Our folks throughout the Seaman district are some of the finest and most dedicated people with whom I’ve worked. Our faculty and staff truly care about our kids; parents and families are engaged and supportive; business and industry partners advise us and provide real world experiences for our students.

"I am honored and humbled to be selected as a finalist for Kansas Superintendent of the Year. The work we all do together is incredibly important and I love the work we are doing for kids!"
