Principal Curiel named Administrator of the Year
We are proud to announce that our very own Principal Curiel has been selected as a 2016 Administrator of the Year by the Association of California School Administrators, Region 17.
“On behalf of ACSA Region 17, Huntington Beach Administrators’ Association and Huntington Beach Union High School District, we would like to congratulate Steve Curiel for winning the Adult School Administrator of the Year award from ACSA Region 17. Steve is an outstanding leader both locally and statewide where he regularly is called on for his expertise in the world of adult education and his passion for supporting students of all ages.”
Jason C. Ross, A.P., Edison High School
Vice President, Legislation, ACSA Region 17
Along with 16 fellow administrators in our region, Steve will be honored at an awards banquet in May. Steve is also in the running for the statewide Adult School Administrator of the Year. Stay tuned as the ASCA state winners are announced in March.
Here at HBAS, we can’t say we’re surprised. Principal Curiel oversees an incredibly diverse set of programs, from Diploma/GED and ESL to Career Education and Personal Enrichment. And he’s also taken a lead in our increasing collaboration with local community colleges and industries.
Congratulations, Steve! We are glad to have you as our fearless leader in the brave new world of Adult Education.
