Last year’s wildfires devastated Sonoma County schools and families. And Superintendent Steve Herrington played a major role in the relief and recovery efforts. For his service during the crisis and its aftermath, the California County Superintendents’ organization (CCSESA) recently bestowed on him its highest level of recognition, the Executive Leadership award. State Superintendent Tom Torlakson commended Herrington’s work in a letter that was read when the award was presented at CCSESA’s 2018 General Membership Dinner in Redwood City. Torlakson wrote, “Working long hours, Superintendent Herrington engaged in constant communications with local, regional, state, and federal agencies in order to mobilize resources and assistance for communities impacted by the fires. [O]ur respect and admiration for Superintendent Herrington grew day-by-day as he unfailingly engaged with us, often on short notice, to support aid for schools and families.... California children and families are extremely fortunate to have Superintendent Herrington serving them.”
