Stephanie Johnson selected as 2017 National Principal of the Year Finalist
The principal at Maynard H. Jackson High School in Atlanta may have a national winner on their hands. Stephanie Johnson is a finalist for National Principal of the Year.
The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) selected three candidates. Johnson is currently the Principal of the Year for Georgia.
These three exceptional school leaders come from across the United States. They will contend for the honor at the 2016 NASSP Principals Institute in Washington, D.C. in September. The awards program in September will recognize the finalists. In attendance will be dignitaries, policymakers and industry peers.
Along with Johnson are Tom Dodd from Colorado and Melissa Hensley from Virginia. They will take part in a series of professional development and activities. They will also meet with their members of Congress. The announcement of the winner takes place during National Principals Month in October 2016.
Johnson’s selection is due, in part, to her extensive outreach to businesses and communities. She added 14 Advanced Placement (AP) courses and an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) program. She also brought up test scores and added co-curricular activities to engage students.
We want to congratulate Johnson and wish her continued success!
