Dr. Aaron Zalis `84, former Superintendent of Rolla Public Schools, was recently honored by the Missouri Association of School Administrators (MASA) for his service to public education. Zalis was one of eight former educators to receive the association’s Outstanding Emeritus Educator Award. This special recognition was made during the awards banquet at the MASA Spring Conference on March 24th at the Lodge of the Four Seasons at Lake Ozark, Missouri.
MASA presents this award annually to recognize individuals for their length of administrative service, their participation in MASA while an active member, significant accomplishments as a school administrator, and for their continued interest in public education since retiring.
Zalis was nominated for the award by his colleagues in the South Central MASA District.
