Best Named NRCSA Superintendent Of The Year

Henderson Heartland Community Schools Superintendent Brad Best was surprised on September 18, during the homecoming pep rally assembly when he was presented with the Nebraska Rural Community School Association (NRCSA) Superintendent of the Year Award for 2020. The organization represents more than 75,000 students in Nebraska school systems and considers superintendents across the state for this annual award.
Best was chosen as this year’s winner by a selection committee after being nominated.
After graduating from the former Geneva High School in 1979, Best earned his bachelor of science degree at Dana College, his master’s from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and his educational specialist degree from Wayne State College.
Best began his teaching career in Bellevue but his first administration position came as an assistant principal at Elkhorn Middle School.
He was then the high school principal at Creighton Community Schools in Creighton, before becoming the curriculum and staff development director for Seward Public Schools.
Mr. Best is the son of Donna and the late Donald Best of Geneva.
