“School leaders truly do what matters most for student success,” said Dr. Pam Deering, CCOSA/OASA Executive Director. “These school leaders have led through a pandemic and budget cuts this year along with many other challenges. They have worked tirelessly for students. Roger Crutchfield is among the best of Oklahoma administrators. We are excited and proud to recognize these outstanding leaders.”
OASA has 20 Districts that consist of multiple counties. Eligible OASA members are nominated and selected by their peers in their OASA District.
Crutchfield has been the Superintendent of Northeast Tech since July of 2019. Prior to that appointment, he served ten years as the district’s Deputy Superintendent, during which time he was awarded the title of District 20 Assistant Superintendent of the Year. He is a member of OASA, the Cooperative Council of School Administrators (CCOSA), and the Oklahoma Association of Career and Technical Education (OKACTE). Of the 20 district award winners across the state, Crutchfield is the only one to represent a Career Tech Center.
“It is a privilege to serve the students, businesses and communities across the Northeast Tech district, and it is an honor to be recognized by my peers and colleagues in our region,” said Crutchfield. “The past couple years have certainly not been without challenges, but with a great team by my side, we have worked hard to continue to provide the best education possible for our students, and I believe we will be better for that.”
