Dr. David Baugh was recently named the 2020 Pennsylvania Superintendent of the Year. He was recently honored by the Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators for the work that everyone is doing here in Centennial.
Dr. Baugh was recognized on December 16, 2019 at The Fuge by over 200 guests from within the district, county, and state as well as his daughter, Hayley, and mother, Mary Frances. He received a citation from the Pennsylvania House of Representatives by Representatives Frank Farry and Meghan Schroeder and a citation from the Pennsylvania Senate by Senator Maria Collett. In addition, United States Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick honored Dr. Baugh with a United States flag that was flown over the Capital, and his name was read into the Congressional Record, making Dr. Baugh a permanent part of United States history.
School Director Mark B. Miller commented on Dr. Baugh’s leadership within the District over the past four years. Former School Director Dr. Andrew Pollock noted Dr. Baugh’s accomplishments with implementing the full day kindergarten program, one-to-one computers for secondary students, and career pathways schedule at the high school. While Dr. Baugh is credited with these accomplishments during his tenure with the district, he stated in his acceptance speech that everything has been a team effort with the school board, administration, staff and community. “I consider the award to be recognition of our work. From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you for the work we are doing together—together we are much stronger and our work is so important. Each positive day is vital in the life of a child. Small habits have huge impacts,” said Dr. Baugh
