The award is given by the organization to recognize a superintendent who employs effective communication strategies to promote their school and school-related activities.

Fuller was credited with implementing new programs in the district that utilize good communication strategies. Those programs  include the Continuous School Improvement Process, an ongoing strategic plan that includes communication as one of 12 strategic areas and the Key Leaders Network, which is used to communicate important information about the district to government, civic and business leaders.

Fuller was also recognized for the recent “Renew Now for Our Children’s Future” tax renewal campaign, which was used to communicate election details to Shelby County citizens.

“I am very honored to have been selected by the Alabama School Communicators Association for this award,” Fuller said in a press release. “Effective communication holds the key to success in our school system as well as our everyday lives.”
