Superintendent Dr. Maleyko awarded Chamber Business Leader of the Year Award

Maleyko awarded Chamber Business Leader of the Year


Dearborn Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Glenn Maleyko received another important honor on Friday when the Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce presented him with the Business Leader of the Year Award.

In presenting the award, the Chamber noted that during Maleyko’s tenure, the district has had two schools named national Blue Ribbon Schools and achieved a 95 percent high school graduation rate.  The district was among 45 named as Districts of Distinction by District Administrator Magazine last year.  Also, five labor union contracts passed with large margins of approval.

Maleyko’s long tenure in Dearborn Schools was also noted during the award ceremony, from his beginning in 1995 as a substitute at Oakman and Maples elementary schools to his job as a teacher at Salina and then up to assistant principal, principal, human resources director and then superintendent in 2015.

“People’s capacity to achieve is greatly influenced by their leader’s ability to empower.  Nowhere is that more true than in the Dearborn Public Schools, thanks to Superintendent Dr. Glenn Maleyko,” said an introductory video for Dr. Maleyko.

“His infectious approach to education and passion for the district have earned him high marks for his leadership style, which has translated into noticeable results,” the video added.

During an onstage interview after receiving the award, Maleyko attributed the District’s success to the teamwork and dedication of all the staff, students, families and community members.

Asked what he saw as the biggest change in his years in the district, Maleyko said social media.  He started in Dearborn Schools before the Internet had really taken root.  Now students and parents expect instant communication from the district, he said.

Dr. Maleyko received the award during the annual Chamber Choice Awards and Expo presented by Ford Land and held at The Henry on March 15.  Other award recipients included KLA Laboratories as Business of the Year, John Zadikian Multimedia as Small Business of the Year, Ford Land for the Impact Award and Zee the Cook for the Startup Award.

The Chamber award is just the latest accolade for Dr. Maleyko.   In February, he received the Superintendent of the Year Award from the Michigan Association of Superintendents and Administrators.
