It's been an exciting month for the Superintendent of Milford Public Schools.
Robert Tremblay, who has served as Milford's superintendent for the past seven years, recently completed his doctoral defense and received his Doctor of Education (Ed.D) degree with a concentration in Educational Leadership and Administration from Northeastern University.
Tremblay, who also received his Master's degree in public administration/public policy/education policy from Northeastern, holds a Master's degree in education from Lesley University and a Bachelor's degree in music from Boston University.
In earning his doctorate, Tremblay completed his most recent dissertation on "Understanding the Political Competence of Public School Superintendents: Bridging the Gap between Educational Altruism and Local Governance 'Buy-In.'"
"While earning the doctorate was a huge accomplishment for me personally, the degree, in my view, enhances the pedigree of the Milford Public Schools," Tremblay said in a statement. "Life-long learning is the sort of role-modeling that the superintendent should set as the bar for his team. There is always more to learn, particularly in an ever-changing environment like education, and the Milford staff understands that. i'm proud to lead the Milford Public Schools and I am appreciative of the support that I have received from the community."
And a large part of the support Tremblay has received has come from the Milford School Committee.
"As a School Committee, we could not be more proud of Bob's recent accomplishment," Milford School Committee Chair Rob Lanzetta said in a statement. "As the top leader in our school system, Bob continuously finds ways to challenge himself in order to keep positively shaping our district. Earning his doctorate, Bob has also set a wonderful example for the staff and students in Milford to keep reaching high educational goals."
