After 31 years, Ashtabula County Technical & Career Campus (A-Tech) superintendent Dr. Jerome R. Brockway is retiring. In an educational career that spanned more than five decades, Brockway held the top position at A-Tech since 1989.
“We can’t thank him enough for all that he has done for this campus and this county,” said A-Tech Board President William Hill.
After Dr. Brockway’s decision to retire, the A-Tech Board took several weeks to review options for his successor. They discussed promoting individuals inside the district who may have the interest, skill sets and motivation. They looked at prospects within the county and interested individuals from outside of the county. After careful deliberation, they selected Scott Wludyga as the next superintendent.
“Wludyga has made an impact as both an instructor and administrator in our district. We believe he has the energy, enthusiasm and experience to lead A-Tech into the future,” said Hill.
Wludyga is a graduate of Pymatuning Valley High School and holds a bachelor’s degree in Communication Arts from Allegheny College, a master’s degree in Career Technical Education from Kent State University and a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Concordia University.
Wludyga has been with A-Tech for 15 years, serving as a Multimedia instructor and Secondary Supervisor. He supervises student orientation and recruitment, the K-12 career education program, the early placement program, marketing, and has developed new satellite programs at schools throughout the county. During his time with A-Tech Wludyga has partnered with numerous community organizations and collaborated with educational leaders in every school district in Ashtabula County.
Wludyga came to A-Tech following a decade-long career in television as the Sports Director and anchor at WJET-TV in Erie, Pa. He currently serves as a board member of Junior Achievement of Ashtabula County and has consistently volunteered with nonprofit organizations during his career.
Wludyga begins his duties August 1.
