MOmentum: State of the Workforce Luncheon

The third annual MOmentum: State of the Workforce Luncheon will be held on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at the Ramada Plaza Hotel & Convention Center.  The results of the third annual regional survey will be announced during the Director's Report on the State of the Workforce by Mary Ann Rojas, Director of the City of Springfield's Department of Workforce Development. 

Dr. John Jungmann, Springfield Public Schools Superintendent, will be featured as the keynote speaker presenting "Building the Workforce of Tomorrow Today." 

Focusing on every learner, every day, Dr. Jungmann leads SPS in efforts to ensure all students are prepared for tomorrow by providing engaging, relevant and personalized experiences through initiatives including IGNiTE, GO CAPS, and GO CSD. In October 2016, Dr. Jungmann was named Missouri Superintendent of the Year and was also invited to represent SPS in the Digital Promise League of Innovative Schools, a national initiative that connects forward thinking leaders of the nation's school districts to work together on shared priorities to improve outcomes for students. 

Other professional accolades include being named 2016 Administrator of the Year by Missouri School Public Relations Association and being recognized by his peers as the 20019-2010 New Superintendent of the Year. Dr. Jungmann completed ASASA's National Superintendent Certification Program in 2015 as a member of the inaugural class.
