Superintendent Dr. Mike Rockwood Among Members of Dallas Business Journal’s 40 Under 40

The Dallas Business Journal is pleased to announce members for its 2022 40 Under 40 Awards. These honorees are rising stars in business, dentistry, fitness, food & beverage, health care, nonprofits, interior design, education, finance, and marketing. Among these 40 individuals is our very own Superintendent Dr. Mike Rockwood.

The 16th annual event honors rising stars and people you should know in the North Texas business community. These 20 men and 20 women are leaders from some of the largest and most notable companies in DFW, along with non-profits and governmental agencies. The honorees are a strong reflection of the diversity of industry and entrepreneurship that comprises North Texas’ business ecosystem.

Judges selected leaders that are making an impression in North Texas after vetting over 300 nominations. The judging panel, comprised of 40 Under 40 alumni, span a variety of industries and roles at private, public, and nonprofit organizations and evaluated nominations over the course of several weeks. This year's 40 Under 40 Awards winners will be honored at an event on Thursday, July 21, at the Marriott Dallas Uptown.

“Dr. Rockwood truly cares about our students, staff, and community,” stated Lake Dallas ISD Board President Lance Stacy. “I am not surprised at all that he is being recognized among the rising executives of DFW. He is a purpose-driven leader and the Lake Dallas ISD Board of Trustees is looking forward to more great things under his continued leadership.”  

Congratulations, Dr. Rockwood, on this great honor!
