New Superintendent Selected By The Governing Board

March 2012- The Glendale Union High School District Governing Board is very pleased to announce it has selected Mr. Eugene Dudo to be the next superintendent. This appointment was formally recognized at the March 7 meeting and will be effective July 1, 2012. Superintendent Dr. Jennifer Johnson and former superintendents Vernon Jacobs, Dr. Gerald George, and Jim Kieffer attended the meeting in support of Mr. Dudo’s appointment.

Mr. Dudo began his career with GUHSD in 1987. Throughout his twenty-five years with the district, he has worked closely with the past five superintendents and countless assistant superintendents and principals. In his current position as the administrator for Title I and in his prior service as the associate superintendent for finance, Mr. Dudo is and has been recognized and respected for his commitment to student learning, school improvement, and the belief that all students can learn.

Before his time with GUHSD, Mr. Dudo spent fourteen years at the state level, where he began serving as an internal auditor and advanced to the position of deputy assistant superintendent for finance for the Arizona Department of Education. This experience provided him with an in-depth understanding of school district operations and allowed him the opportunity to work closely with the state legislature and local school superintendents on education issues and reform. 

Mr. Dudo will replace Dr. Jennifer Johnson, who will remain in office until her June 30 retirement.
