Superintendent Sipe Wins Regional Leadership Award

Superintendent Heidi Sipe was honored as the 2017 Doug Flatt Memorial Leadership Award winner on Monday, May 15. The award was announced at the InterMountain Education Service District’s 18th annual Crystal Apple “Excellence in Education” Awards at the Pendleton Red Lion Hotel.

 

The Doug Flatt Memorial Leadership Award is named for the late Doug Flatt, who was the chief executive officer of Mid Columbia Bus Company (MIDCO). Flatt lost his life in a tragic plane crash while on business. In guiding the growth and operation of MIDCO, Flatt exemplified the finest qualities of leadership, attention to detail, service to his community, interpersonal relationships and customer service. The purpose of this award is to recognize a school administrator from a Mid Columbia Bus Company school district who exemplifies the same qualities for which Flatt was legendary. The award is sponsored by the IMESD and Mid Columbia Bus Company.

 

Each year, only one administrator in all of Umatilla, Morrow and Union counties receives the Doug Flatt Memorial Leadership Award.

 

Mid Columbia representatives Cindy Nicholson, regional director of operations, and Guy Shanks, region vice president, presented the award along with Dr. Mark Mulvihill, IMESD superintendent.

 

Mulvihill said Sipe has dedicated her entire career to students and always puts kids first. “What makes Heidi unique as a superintendent is she chose to stay in one community, serving a student population of great need.  She has invested not only in the schools, but also the community. She is highly respected and well liked by her peers and considered a vital member of our regional superintendent team,” Mulvihill said.

 

Sipe has been the superintendent for Umatilla schools since 2007. She was named the 2015 Oregon Superintendent of the Year and is a mentor for the award-winning Umatilla robotics team.

Welcome to Umatilla School District

Welcome to the Umatilla School District website. Our purpose is to provide our students with a top quality public education so that they may become the successful, contributing citizens of the future.

Our school district consists of 1360 students, 73 teachers, 64 classified, 6 administrators, 7 supervisory, and 3 confidential staff members. We have three schools: an elementary, a middle and a high school. Our location is at the confluence of the Umatilla and Columbia Rivers, and we are rich in history of Lewis and Clark as well as the Tribes of the Umatilla, Walla Walla, and Cayuse Indians.

Umatilla is a natural transportation hub, as we are located near the river, the railroad, and two interstate highways. While our economic base has primarily been agricultural in the past, we are seeing more diversity these days due, in part, to our proximity to transportation.

You are welcome to peruse our web site. Our school pages contain our curriculum for grades K-12 as well as lists of activities and general school news.

We are proud of our district: our staff is working hard, our students are learning and our community gives us wonderful support.  So please feel welcome to explore our web site and learn more about Umatilla School District.
