Dr. Tucker is MAAE Administrator of the Year

At the Tuesday evening, September 15, 2020 Board of Education meeting, LPS Superintendent, Dr. Jeremy Tucker, was introduced as the 2020 Missouri Alliance for Arts Education Administrator of the Year. Under Dr. Tucker's leadership, LPS has been named a Best Communities for Music Education for eight consecutive years, and remains a leader in the Kansas City metro, state, region, and nation when it comes to the arts.
"Dr. Tucker exemplifies the ideals of the MAAE Administrator of the Year award", said DESE Arts Education Director Roger Kelley. "Under your leadership the Liberty arts programs continue to excel and are strong examples for other Missouri school districts to model".
Following the surprise announcement, Dr. Tucker was quick to deflect the praise.
"As with any individual award that would come my way, this is a team award", Tucker said. "We are so fortunate to be able to provide our young people the tremendous opportunities that we do in Liberty Public Schools. This award is a credit to the entire Fine Arts program that includes students, staff, parents, and community".
