Crutchfield named Administrator of the Year


Northeast Technology Center’s Deputy Superintendent Roger Crutchfield was named the District 20 Assistant Superintendent/Central Office Administrator of the Year Wednesday by the Oklahoma Association of School Administrators.
Administrators and superintendent finalists from 20 districts were recognized during the annual Cooperative Council for Oklahoma School Administration Conference.
Crutchfield earned the recognition through a vote of his peers after being nominated by a fellow OASA member and was included on a ballot sent to all OASA members across the state.
“It is truly an honor to be recognized by one’s peers,” said Crutchfield. “I’m humbled to have been nominated for and awarded this recognition.”
Crutchfield is one of 19 assistant superintendents and central office administrators selected for this award from 20 regions across the state. 
“Our association recognizes the valuable contributions these administrators make to their school districts. They are an integral part of the school leadership team,” said Steven Crawford, OASA Executive Director. 
Crutchfield has been the Deputy Superintendent of Northeast Technology Center for the past five years. He has 26 years of experience in education and   administration.
He began his career as a science teacher with Claremore Public Schools in 1987. Crutchfield also taught at Blanchard and Oologah-Talala Public Schools.
Since then, he has served as assistant principal at Miami Public Schools, principal at Claremore High School and Director of Adult Education at NTC’s Pryor Campus.
“I truly do enjoy my current position largely due to the exceptional people that surround me,” he said. “NTC was a very good career move for me and I am proud to represent such a great school district.”  
Crutchfield is a member of several professional organizations including the Cooperative Council for Oklahoma School Administration, the Oklahoma Association of School Administrators, the Association for Career and Technical Education and the Oklahoma Association for Career and Technical Education. CCOSA is an incorportated, non-profit organization that serves more than 2,800 superintendents, assistant superintendents, principals, special education directors and central office administrators.
