The Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) honored former Humble ISD Superintendent Dr. Guy M. Sconzo for his service in education with a tribute video. He was awarded the Golden Deeds for Education Award.
The award is given to an individual from any profession who has, through actions and deeds, improved the educational system in Texas to enrich the lives of all Texas public school students. Recipients are nominated by a committee of school district superintendents from across Texas.
Dr. Sconzo worked in education for four decades before passing away in April 2020, following a battle with cancer. He was a superintendent for 26 years, 15 of those spent with Humble ISD, and he served as executive director of the Fast Growth School Coalition just before his passing.
In 2007, he was named Texas State Superintendent of the Year. Under his leadership, Humble ISD was named the Best Large District in Texas in the 2015 H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards.
Sconzo was an advocate for the needs of all Texas schoolchildren. He was also a community leader, serving on the Boards of the Flaming Arrow District of the Boy Scouts of America, Humble Area Assistance Ministries, Humble Intercontinental Rotary, Lake Houston Area Chamber of Commerce, Lake Houston Family YMCA, Lone Star College Chancellor’s Executive Advisory Council, Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital and University of Houston Impact Council.
