Northwest ISD’s Executive Director for College, Career Readiness, and Innovation, CyLynn Braswell, has been named the Career and Technical Association of Texas (CTAT) Administrator of the Year.

Nominations are received from CTAT’s 12 areas throughout Texas, with one candidate being selected to represent the state at the Association for Career and Technical Education Region IV awards.

“In my opinion, CTAT could not have selected a better leader for this award,” said Dr. Ryder Warren, superintendent of schools. “We are fortunate to have her working on behalf of our student population to make sure they are fully prepared for opportunities presented to them following graduation. CyLynn has proven time after time that she will do anything it takes to serve our children because they are always her focus.”

A lifelong learner, Braswell has a long list of accomplishments with almost 20 years of experience in education. Under her leadership within NISD, the district offers eight high school academic academies with open enrollment. Additionally, beyond the expansion of CTE in all six middle schools, 17 programs of study are offered at each comprehensive high school, providing unique opportunities designed to meet the individual needs of all secondary students, ensuring they are future-ready.

Braswell has been integral in establishing and promoting a variety of district-wide initiatives with the goal of providing real world, authentic opportunities for all students.

“CTAT is proud to have CyLynn represent Texas,” said Robin Painovich, CTAT Executive Director. “She is leading one of the top CTE programs in Texas and we are very proud to honor her with our highest award for administrators.”

Braswell holds a B.S. in Agricultural Services and Development, a M.S. in Agricultural Education and a M.S. in Information Systems from Tarleton State University and is a doctoral candidate for Educational Leadership from the University of North Texas.
