KEARNEY -- Centennial Superintendent of Schools Tim DeWaard was presented the 2018 University of Nebraska at Kearney Leaders in Education and Service (UNKLES) Award. Membership in UNKLES is an honor bestowed on administrators who have distinguished themselves with leadership and service as documented by their peers, according to organizers.
