What I find remarkable about Dr. Greg Smith, what makes him so deserving of this honor, is that he has taken a great school district to the next level. Rather than rest on Clear Creek ISD’s laurels, he reached out to the community and encouraged all of us to take ownership in our school district. I see his vision and pride of CCISD shared everyday in the voices of our students, parents, teaching and administrative staff of our schools. Thank you Dr. Smith for a job well done!

Dr. Greg Smith is so deserving of this prestigious award. He is obviously the “face” of Clear Creek Independent School District; however, he is its heart and mind, as well. Not only is he ultimately responsible for each child’s academic growth within this large school district, he must also been keenly aware of and operate within the guidelines set forth by the state. It’s a huge job, and I can’t think of anyone who could do it better than Dr. Smith.

-Bob Mitchell

BAHEP President

-J. Larry Durrence
