A three decade career dedicated to shaping our future was celebrated today as the Natrona County School District hosted a Retirement Reception for Dr. Joel Dvorak, superintendent. The reception was held in the Jefferson and East Rooms at NCSD’s Central Services Facility (CSF)on Wednesday, May 29. Staff, former staff, parents, students, community members and the general public stopped in to wish Dr. Dvorak well.
In addition, NCSD’s Diversity Partnerships surprised Dr. Dvorak by dedicating a Peace Pole in his name.
“This peace pole symbolizes NCSD’s commitment to the value placed on what every individual brings to NCSD. Dr. Dvorak upheld this value during his tenure as superintendent and we wanted to thank him by honoring him with this dedication,” said Dr. Crystal Mueller, associate superintendent of Human Resources and Diversity Partnerships coordinator.
Dr. Dvorak became superintendent at NCSD in 2008 after serving as the associate superintendent of curriculum and instruction since 2003. Prior to his leadership at NCSD, Dr. Dvorak served as assistant superintendent in Johnson County. He began his teaching career in 1980, teaching science and math in Minnesota, North Dakota, and Wyoming. In 1991, he became assistant principal in Ranchester, WY. He later went on to become principal at Big Horn Junior/Senior High School and then principal in Johnson County.
Dvorak will wrap up his tenure at NCSD on June 30, 2013.
