Pugh elected to MASS board

Adam Pugh, superintendent of the Lafayette County School District, recently was elected by his fellow superintendents to serve on the board of directors for the Mississippi Association of School Superintendents for a two-year term from July 2015 until July 2017.

TheMississippiAssociationofSchoolSuperintendents (MASS) was organized in 1969. There are 144 school districts in Mississippi with 56 elected and 88 appointed superintendents, all of which are eligible for membership in MASS.

If a superintendent is a member of MASS, then all the other administrators in that school district automatically become members of the affiliate organization called the Alliance of Education Leaders of Mississippi (The Alliance) at no additional cost. There are about 2,200 administrators, in addition to superintendents, throughout the state.

This year MASS celebrates 46 years of being a voice of education in the state. MASS works with legislators and state leaders to influence issues before they become law. The MASS/Alliance coalition, in cooperation with other professional educational organizations, is a strong supporter of public education.
