Principals of the Year

Each year, AWSP recognizes three principals with Principal of the Year awards, celebrating elementary, middle and high school principals. The awards provide significant recognition on the regional and state level. The middle and high school level winners are eligible to compete at the national level. In September 2012, Trevor Greene became our state's first National Principal of the Year.
