2016 Outstanding Service Award
Each year USA-Kansas recognizes one individual for their exceptional service to the profession with the Outstanding Service Award. This is the highest award USA-Kansas offers. The recipient of this award is nominated by their peers, but the single awardee is selected by a panel that includes the presidents of the ten USA-Kansas affiliates.
Ron Vinduska was honored this summer at the USA-Kansas Convention in Wichita. Ron has demonstrated remarkable leadership in his own district for the past 41 years! He started as a teacher and coach, later moved to the role of assistant principal and has served as principal at Seaman High School in Topeka since 2002. Mr. Vinduska served on the board of directors and as President of KASSP, multiple committees with KSDE and has been a tremendous mentor and leader for principals across Kansas.
