Awards, Milestones, and Service

Bronaugh successfully brought Sherman Elementary School in Toledo from its F ranking up a grade. He did this through building school pride among its students, fostering partnerships with Boys and Girls Clubs that met in the building after school, and building parent engagement. He also implemented social-emotional learning, which repeatedly models expected behavior and is designed to improve students' interactions with staff and other students. In his work at Robinson Elementary, he took a holistic approach, bringing in the community, staff, parents, and kids, and providing resources for parents. At both schools, he instilled in students the importance of preparing for standardized tests and taking them seriously.

Bronaugh has served as a mentor at the University of Toledo College of Education and the Toledo Association of Administrative Personnel. He also has coached boys junior varsity basketball at the Maumee Valley Country Day School and freshman football at Southview High School.

He has seen that many students struggle with English as a second language. Because of this, he has supported ESL programs in schools and brought together students of all non-English languages throughout the school district into one ESL teaching environment.

Anthony also has served on numerous boards, including the Urban Leadership Development Program (2011 to 2016), the Frederick Douglass Community Association (2011-2012), WGTE Toledo (2015 to 2017), and the University of Toledo Excel Program (2011 to present.)

Personal Background

Bronaugh lives in Sylvania, Ohio. He has also been a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. Toledo Alumni Chapter since 1997, currently holding the position of Vice Polemarch.

Bronaugh brings to his consulting work and educational positions an understanding of the adversity many students face. He also brings to his students and fellow educators the will to succeed despite adversity. His father, a drug addict, was murdered in Dayton, and the police never solved the case. Despite this, he was determined to succeed and knew education would be a critical factor in success. His mother taught him the value of hard work, and he taught himself to play baseball and basketball. He toured several colleges to try out for their baseball teams and ended up at the University of Toledo, where he stayed. He also modeled the behaviors taught him by his grandfather, a successful businessman.
