Lomanto takes administrator of the year

The Association of California School Administrators named San Benito High School Principal Krystal Lomanto as administrator of the year for region 10.

“She was nominated due to her strong leadership skills and moving a large comprehensive high school in a positive direction, academically and athletically,” said Shawn Tennenbaum, the human resources director at the high school.

The region includes the Central Coast and 45 to 50 high schools.

“It is basically given to an administrator who has effected change in a positive way,” Tennenbaum said.

Lomanto is completing her second year as principal. She is a Baler alumna who graduated from San Benito High School in 1983. She taught science on campus and became a teacher on special assignment, working with new teachers to support them during their first year on campus. She also served as a coach and as vice principal before taking the helm as principal.

“I’ve been here many years, as a teacher, coach and teacher on assignment, and along the way, [Lomanto’s] growth has been tremendous,” Tennenbaum said. “There is a difference between growing into a role and really embodying it … I think Krystal can really be commended for that.”

Tennenbaum cited the increased test scores on campus as one example of Lomanto’s positive influence.

“Krystal has a belief, and that belief is contagious, that San Benito High School can make a difference in a child’s life,” he said.

The nomination form requires information on the positions the nominee has held; memberships or offices held in professional organizations; publications, articles and presentations; and community leadership. The person nominating also includes a letter explaining how the nominee meets the award criteria and letters of support.

“It’s a bigger award for the school,” Tennenbaum said. “Individual achievements are great … It really shows San Benito High School moving in a positive way in education.”
