Barbara Malkas is honored with the MASS President's Award.
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Superintendent of Schools Barbara Malkas has been recognized by her peers for her professional accomplishment and her advocacy for students.
Malkas was presented with the Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents' 2019 President's Award at the association's May conference.
A member of the MASS executive committee, she has been an educator for more than 32 years in the roles of science teacher, school administrator, district administrator, deputy superintendent, and superintendent. She has been superintendent of the North Adams Public Schools for three years and of the Webster Public Schools for the previous four years.
She was selected for the award because in each of her districts and roles, she has strived to improve the quality of education for all students, particularly those representing underserved populations. As a MASS committee member, she consistently advocates for the unique needs of students in Western Massachusetts. She also served as the Berkshire County representative to the Superintendents Advisory Council, often reminding the commissioner in a clear and professional manner of the unique conditions in Berkshire County.
Parts of that hole, however, could be filled by the inspiring and uplifting words of the speakers who came to the podium on Friday to share what the idea of "building community" — the theme of the meeting, complete with a Lego brick motif and cake — meant to them. click for more
