The superintendent of Grafton (N.D.) Public School District was recently named North Dakota Superintendent of the Year.

Jack Maus was chosen by the North Dakota Association of School Administrators for the award, which will place him in the national competition. He will be honored in February with other national finalists at a conference in Phoenix, Ariz.

Maus was hired as superintendent of the district in 2006 after spending about 30 years as an educator. He serves on a number of boards for state associations and local organizations.

Central Middle School Principal Michael Kaiser said in the short time he's worked for the school, he's found Maus to be a great leader. Kaiser was hired as principal this year.

"He was very instrumental in our building projects and renovation, which were just completed," Kaiser said. "He (also) really shares his time and talents through the different organizations and groups he's involved in."
