Bill Cirone

The award is conferred annually to an individual deemed to be “a champion of public education and the students of California.”

In thanking the statewide organization for the honor, Superintendent Cirone said: “I consider it a privilege to serve as county superintendent. I also consider it a responsibility to speak out about the critical issues facing education in my county, in our state, and in the nation. I share the Champion’s honor, which comes as a complete surprise, with all of you for your passionate, skillful, and tireless work as advocates for children and their education. Working effectively, under less than ideal conditions, you are the true community champions and heroes.”
