Jule Walker, superintendent of the Plevna School District No. 55, was elected to a three-year term on the executive committee of AASA, the school superintendents association. AASA is the leading national organization for superintendents dedicated to improving the quality of public schools and supporting superintendents and emerging educational leaders throughout the country.

The 21-member committee, elected by AASA’s governing board, represents each region of the country. The committee meets quarterly and conducts the ongoing business of the organization.

Last fall, Walker was the recipient of the G.V. Erickson Award, the highest award given in Montana for notable service and dedication to education. A past president of the Montana Association of School Superintendents and School Administrators of Montana, she was named Montana Superintendent of the Year in 2011. Walker has been an AASA member since 1997.

Holding district leadership positions for more than 15 years, Walker has served as superintendent of Plevna Schools since 2002. She held a similar position for five years with Ekalaka Public Schools in Ekalaka.
