Lamar CISD’s Chief of Staff Receives Prestigious Scholarship

Mike Rockwood was one of two recipients of the esteemed 2020 Johnny L. Veselka Scholarship! This scholarship will help Mike to continue pursuing “his doctorate in educational leadership from Baylor University.” As a future superintendent, Mike aspires to “remove obstacles, connect people, and protect students.” His passion to make a positive impact on students is a characteristic that will make Mike an incredible superintendent. 

The Texas Association of School Administration has awarded the Johnny L. Veselka Scholarship to doctoral students since 2014. Applicants for this scholarship are “doctoral students pursuing careers in educational leadership, with an emphasis on the superintendency.” Recipients are then chosen by the TASA Johnny L. Veselka Scholarship Committee, which is comprised by “a group of Texas school superintendents and other public school district administrators.”
