BANGOR — The leader of the Bangor School District has been named the top superintendent in Maine.

Betsy Webb was voted Superintendent of the Year by the Maine Schools Superintendent’s Association in Augusta on Wednesday.

The award is based on Webb’s leadership, community involvement, fiscal management, and professionalism.

Bangor School Committee Chairwoman Phyllis Guerette said she nominated Webb in part because of how much Webb has been able to help the school district accomplish despite $5.5 million in funding cuts in four years.

Webb says the honor is a testament to the entire school system, including students and faculty.

The school committee will recognize Webb’s accomplishment at its Nov. 15 meeting.
