Jesse Uhlmeyer ’03, Superintendent of the Canton R-V School District was among seven Missouri school superintendents recognized by the Missouri Association of School Administrators (MASA) for outstanding performance as an emerging superintendent.

His colleagues in the Northeast MASA District for this honor nominated Uhlmeyer for the honor. He was recognized during the awards banquet at the MASA Spring Conference on May 24.

The Emerging Superintendent award is presented annually to superintendents who are in their second or third year of employment as a superintendent and have made a measurable contribution to the school district, which they serve.

“It is humbling to be recognized for this honor,” said Uhlmeyer. “This award does not only reflect my contributions to our students. For me, this award reflects the contributions of our entire school community, teachers, principals, staff, students and parents, who make Canton R-V School District an amazing place to learn and achieve success.”

Uhlmeyer received his bachelor’s degree in secondary education from Culver-Stockton College in 2003.

“My time at Culver-Stockton College prepared me tremendously for becoming a lifelong learner and wanting to make a positive impact on the lives of students in my classroom,” said Uhlmeyer. “As I continued my education and moved into school administration, my focus has always remained on impacting students in a positive way each and every day.”
