    Dear PPS staff and families,

    The search and recruitment for our new superintendent is well underway.

     Yousef Awwad, Interim PPS Superintendent

    From a remote town in Jordan to leading Oregon’s biggest school district

    At the age of 5, Yousef Awwad joined his older brothers in the streets of Ghweria, Jordan, a small city outside Zarqa, to sell sesame candies and balloons to keep food on his family’s table.

    Yousef’s dad was serving in the Jordan military and was stationed in an area of the desert so remote that he wasn’t able to send money home while he was deployed.

    Today, Yousef is serving as the new interim superintendent of the largest school district in Oregon. How did a boy living in poverty in a remote town in Jordan wind up here?
