Celebrations honor Principals of the Year at their campuses
Recent celebrations took the Principal of the Year party to the winners’ campuses. Secondary Principal of the Year Dwain Simmons was celebrated on Friday, Feb. 15, with a catered barbecue lunch. The day was a student holiday/staff development day, which Simmons said was on purpose so that staff could relax and enjoy their lunch. “This isn’t just about me,” Simmons told the cafeteria full of Pinkston teachers and staff. “It’s because of everybody in this room.” He specifically recognized fellow campus administrators, teachers, and also custodial and cafeteria staff. Elementary Principal of the Year Damien Stovall was honored earlier with a celebration at Edward Titche Elementary School. He and Simmons were named principals of the year at a luncheon in December. Both celebrations were sponsored by AXA Advisors.
