Dr. Contreras will be honored as the North Carolina PTA Superintendent of the Year, which recognizes superintendents who fulfill the PTA vision to make every child’s potential a reality.
“Dr. Sharon L. Contreras is passionate about providing high-quality education to each child with the goal that every student graduates college- and career-ready,” wrote Shirrell Williams, Guilford County Council of PTAs president. “As Guilford County Council of PTAs President, I enjoy meeting with Dr. Contreras and sharing parents’ concerns, learning how the GCS school district and the PTAs can work together to help make our school district great.”
Among her initiatives, Contreras has developed a partnership with Equal Opportunity Schools to ensure greater minority representation in Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate classes.
