Robert Stewart honored nationally for HR excellence

Robert Stewart At a recent conference in Baltimore, the American Association of School Personnel Administrators honored Denton ISD’s Dr. Robert Stewart, assistant superintendent of human resources, with an award of special merit. The honor is bestowed upon individuals who have made a substantial contribution to AASPA and enhanced the professional visibility of the association and the field of school personnel administrators.

“Dr. Stewart is the epitome of professionalism in this industry. He has been recognized for years as an innovative and progressive-thinking administrator by his colleagues and peers, so he’s very deserving of this honor and recognition,” said Dr. Richard Valenta, deputy superintendent.

Last fall, the Texas Association of School Personnel Administrators awarded him the Dr. Mary Hopkins Personnel Administrator of the Year Award which is annually given to individuals in the human resources field whom TASPA officials deem to possess strong leadership ability, a high degree of personal and professional integrity and the ability to recruit high-quality members to their organization.

Dr. Stewart has worked for Denton ISD in a key leadership position for the Human Resources Department for the past eight years. He previously worked in Plano ISD’s Human Resources Department as the Director of Compensation and Diversity.
