Alex M. Bromir

Administrator
Inducted 1994

Whether as teacher, coach or administrator, Alex Bromir has demonstrated a strong commitment to interscholastic athletics and activities through his 40-year career in public education.

Bromir, a native of Monessen, Penn., despite calling Miami his hometown, began his teaching career in 1954 at Tyron (N.C.) High School where he coached both the boys and girls basketball teams. Following that first year of teaching, he returned to Miami, where he had resided since 1941, and taught at Miami Springs Junior High School.

Bromir’s administrative career began in 1962 as an assistant principal at Carol City Junior High School. He moved to Miami Springs Senior High School as an assistant principal in 1965, and then was promoted to principal of Horace Mann Junior High in 1967.

In 1969, Bromir returned to Miami Springs Senior as principal, where he became actively involved in the governance of the Florida High School Activities Association – first as a District 12 Director from 1973-78, as Vice President in 1978-79 and as president from 1979-81., when he left Miami Springs Senior to become Area Line Director and Area and Region Superintendent in Dade County for 10 years. Following a one year retirement, Bromir returned to the Dade County School System as Chief Administrator of the Division of Community Education and Participation, a position he still olds today.

During this past school year, Bromir – in collaboration with several public and private organizations in Dade County – has developed the Good Life Program, through which professional, collegiate and high school athletes work as mentors to per-high school students within the high school’s feeder pattern and at the local parks. The program has received national recognition from U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, and will be a topic of discussion at the National Training Consortium at the Whit House in 1995.

Bromir and his wife, Deannie, are parents of three children and have six grandchildren. They reside in Miami Springs.
