Dr. Vic Zimmerman, superintendent of Monticello CUSD #10, is the president of the Illinois Association of School Administrators, the state’s premier advocacy organization for public school superintendents.
Zimmerman has been superintendent at Monticello CUSD #10 since 2007. Prior to arriving in Monticello, he served as superintendent of St. Joseph Ogden CHSD #305 for four years.
“I am honored and excited to be representing my peers from all across the state as IASA President,” Zimmerman said. “This is the toughest year superintendents have ever faced, and I’m glad to be part of an association that is dedicated to supporting school leaders in their pursuit of educational excellence.”
The Illinois Association of School Administrators, or IASA, provides nearly 2,000 members with high quality professional development, networking opportunities and legal resources and advocates on behalf of school administrators across the state.
The association is governed by a board of directors, comprised of public school superintendents across Illinois, and is led by Executive Director Dr. Brent Clark. Zimmerman begins his one-year term as president on July 1.
“Vic Zimmerman is a respected educator and leader who always puts the needs of students first,” said Dr. Brent Clark, executive director of IASA. “His knowledge and leadership will help move the association forward while staying true to our vision of maximum educational success for all students.”
Zimmerman will take over as president from Paula Hawley, superintendent of Pikeland CUSD #10.
He received his doctorate of education in 2003 from the University of Illinois and is a graduate of Paxton High School.
