Belle Plaine Superintendent Dr. Ryan Laager received the 2021 Regional Administrators of Excellence Award for Region 2.

Nine superintendents from different districts throughout the State of Minnesota were recognized by the Minnesota Association of School Administrators (MASA) for their leadership, concern for students, and active involvement in professional and community affairs.

The recipients were honored at a statewide recognition ceremony during the virtual MASA/MASE Spring Conference on March 11 and 12.

Those selected are representative of the leadership excellence found in MASA members, exhibit a willingness to risk, possess strong communications skills, are progressive change agents, and have high expectations for themselves and others.

Each recipient is an active member of MASA who demonstrates professional and organizational leadership within their respective region. MASA members of each region determine the recipient of their local award.

MASA is a professional organization of Minnesota’s school leaders, including superintendents, assistant superintendents, directors of special education, and other central office administrators, as well as state department administrators, college and university professors, and other educators throughout Minnesota dedicated to educational leadership for students.
