Banking on His Immigrant Experience
Goldman, Jay P.
School Administrator, v61 n4 p51 Apr 2004
Basan N. Nembirkow grew up as a pre-adolescent adoring the Brooklyn Dodgers, and his friends in central New Jersey applied the nickname of Buzz, to which he still answers. But in other respects, it would be hard to suggest Basan Nembirkow is simply a product of a middle-class American upbringing. Nembirkow, who is about to finish his second year as superintendent in Chicopee, Massachusetts, comes from another world. His parents and other ancestors lived in what is now Mongolia, where Genghis Khan once roamed. This makes him one of the nation's few Asian American superintendents and surely the only one ever to be hired as an education consultant to the Republic of Kazakstan. This article contains a brief profile of Basan N. Nembirkow and his work as superintendent.
