Mike Rockwood

Lamar Consolidated ISD Chief of Staff Mike Rockwood has been named a recipient of the 2020 Johnny L. Veselka Scholarship, which is awarded each year to outstanding doctoral students pursuing careers in educational leadership, especially the superintendency.

Rockwood is one of the two recipients selected by the Texas Association of School Administrators, which hands out the annual award.

He was awarded a $2,500 scholarship during the 2020 TASA Midwinter Conference in January.

Rockwood is pursuing a doctorate in educational leadership from Baylor University.

“I aspire to be a superintendent because I strongly believe in the power of public education to change lives and I am passionate about shaping our future,” he said.

“I believe a superintendent should remove obstacles, connect people, and protect students.

“I have chosen the superintendency as a career because our children represent so much hope and positivity for a future that is yet to be discovered.”
