HASA Member Testimony
by Marie Whalen

It is an honor to thank the Hillsborough Association of School Administrators for being selected as the first recipient of the Dr. John P. Miliziano Leadership Scholarship in 2013. As I was completing my application to be considered for the scholarship awards, I reflected on all of the work Dr. Miliziano did during his tenure in the district and in his retirement to support the next generation of administrators.

Highlights: 1) Opening Keynote Speaker Dr. Adolph Brown stunned the audience. Prior to the program’s start, conference participants had no clue who this young man wearing baggy clothes and with standing hair braids was. Later he was introduced as “the keynote speaker”. Surprise, surprise!  continued

2015 Scholarship Award Winners



HASA Member Spotlight

 Sherell D. Wilson, Ph.D.

Supervisor, Division of Academic Support & Federal Programs

Dr. Sherell Wilson serves HASA as its Secretary and Special Events Committee Chairman for 2015-16. She has twice won HASA scholarships to propel her toward achievement of her Ph.D. in 2014. She then was awarded a HASA Professional Development grant which she used to attend a conference this fall. Following is her first person account of that experience.

I had the pleasure of participating in this year’s

Educational Strategies and Student Engagement Institute (ESSEI) hosted by the Florida Department of Education. The institute was held on September 21-23, 2015 at The Orlando World Center Marriott.

The 2015 ESSEI conference united professionals from various disciplines in support of our commitment to keep students in school, engage them in learning, and to ensure that quality programs are available to enrich their learning. This year’s 2015 ESSEI Conference was designed to provide an opportunity to delve deeper into the factors that impact students’ decisions to dropout, and also to provide resources to enrich the capacity of educators and the community in responding to the charge of keeping students in school and helping them graduate and be prepared for life.   continued
