Excellence in Education Award Recipient Honored

Lisa Guzzardo Asaro, Ed.S., received the Excellence in Education Award for her exemplary leadership in education.

Throughout her career, Lisa has contributed significantly to the broader education profession. For the past eight years she has been a member of the Michigan Department of Education Continuous School Improvement (MI-CSI) Team whose responsibility is to provide continuous improvement training and resources for schools and districts across the state. As part of her Focused School Improvement series, she has frequently created resources to support the schools and districts in her county and is very generous in sharing those with the entire state. In addition, she has shared her knowledge through presentations to hundreds of people at state and regional conferences.

The impact that Lisa has had as a role model and mentor can be noted by the extended relationships she has created and maintained. Administrators and teachers that have felt the impact of her unique gifts have gone on to building, district and county leadership roles armed with the knowledge and skills that she had guided and facilitated. They continue to utilize the skills and wisdom in new positions as Superintendent, Central office Administration and ISD consultants. Lisa’s investment in the essential, quality work of school improvement and patience with new team members is unmatched and irreplaceable.
