The New Jersey Association of School Administrators has named Dr. Philip Guenther of Atlantic County Institute of Technology as the state Superintendent of the Year.
An article on the announcement in the Press of Atlantic City noted that Dr. Guenther “was chosen for his work on the expansion of the county vocational school from a shared-time high school to a full-time comprehensive career and technical high school focused on 21st-century careers.
“The $40 million expansion project and new academy programs have expanded the school’s full-time enrollment to more than 1,100 students,” the newspaper noted.
Dr. Guenther will now represent New Jersey in the national Superintendent of the Year program, sponsored by the American Association of School Administrators and others.
He is the first county vocational-technical school superintendent to be named NJASA Superintendent of the Year since 1994, when former Salem County Vocational Technical Schools Superintendent William H. Adams received the award.
Dr. Guenther served as the President of NJCCVTS from 2011 until 2013.
