APS’ Brad Winter Earns Distinguished Service Award

District COO was recognized by the Council of the Great City Schools.

Albuquerque Public Schools Chief Operations Officer Brad Winter has been recognized with the Distinguished Service Award by the Council of the Great City Schools, a national organization representing the 67 largest urban school districts in the country.

“Brad Winter has been committed to APS for more than three decades as a teacher, track coach and high school and district administrator,” APS Superintendent Winston Brooks said. “I’m thrilled to see him receive a well-deserved honor in front of his peers from around the country. With all the hats he’s worn, he truly cares about our bottom line mission of student achievement.”

Winter received the award at a CGCS conference of operations officers Thursday evening in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

The COO since 2008, Winter oversees the non-academic operations of the district, including facilities design, construction and maintenance; capital master plan; food services; school police and transportation. He previously served as director of the APS Capital Master Plan Office and an assistant principal at Highland and La Cueva high schools.

The New Mexico native earned master’s and doctoral degrees from the University of New Mexico, following an All-America career as a pole-vaulter at the University of Oklahoma. Winter is currently serving his fourth term as an Albuquerque City Councilor, representing the far northeast heights.
