Dr. Bryan O’Black, assistant superintendent, is one of 17 professionals nationwide to receive the University Council for Educational Administration’s (UCEA) Excellence in Educational Leadership Award.

The UCEA Excellence in Educational Leadership Award is recognition for practicing school administrators who have made contributions to the improvement of administrator preparation. Each year, the UCEA Executive Committee invites member university faculties to select a distinguished school administrator who has an exemplary record of supporting school administrator preparation efforts. The faculty at Duquesne University nominated O’Black for recognition this year.

O’Black serves as a mentor to doctoral candidates within the Ed.D. in Educational Leadership program at Duquesne University.

The Duquesne faculty also recognized O’Black’s work with the Pennsylvania Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development as having clear impact on educational leaders across the commonwealth.
