Superintendent Dr. Peterson Honored with Builder of Legacy Impact Award

Congratulations to Superintendent Dr. Dennis Peterson who was recently honored with a "Builder of Legacy Impact" Hall of Fame Award.

This award, given by Humanex Ventures, a well-established leadership assessment and consulting firm, recognizes those 'elite' individuals who have built a legacy over decades of distinguished leadership. It honors those who are directly and indirectly impacting thousands of people in very meaningful ways that will be felt, modeled and multiplied for many years to come.

The award is given each year to a leader and champion with purpose, to a doer and dreamer, to an investor of the future and to a believer and builder of what matters and what lasts. Past award honorees include presidents of Fortune 500 companies that are in the top 1% of industry performance, the winningest collegiate coaches, and a handful of superintendents of the year, such as Dr. Peterson.
