FHSD assistant superintendent is a finalist for global leadership award

Greg Sears, Assistant Superintendent of Teaching and Learning at Forest Hills, is a finalist for a global leadership award. The recipient of the award will be determined through an online voting system, which is open now through December 30. 

Sears is in the running for the Multiplier of the Year Award, organized by Wiseman Group. This prestigious award recognizes leaders worldwide who successfully amplify the capabilities of those around them. According to the Wiseman Group, “when these leaders walk into a room, light bulbs go on; ideas flow and problems get solved.” Sears is specifically recognized for his ability to create a positive environment that encourages and elevates people’s best thinking. 

Since joining Forest Hills School District in 2018, Sears has played a key role in the development and implementation of the district’s empowered, personalized, innovative, and collaborative (EPIC) teaching and learning culture. He has also worked to revitalize professional development to best engage and support more than 500 teachers. 

“Greg has created an environment where we, collectively, are invested in the development of our map and taking the journey together,” said Kimberly Pence, Associate Director of Middle School Teaching and Learning. “People are willing to innovate and create new opportunities, all with students being at the center of our work.”

Sears has more than twenty years of experience in education. After earning his bachelor’s degree from Miami University, Sears received his master’s in educational administration from the University of Cincinnati. He is currently enrolled in Xavier University’s leadership studies doctoral program.
