Here’s one thing the students at Jack L. Weaver Elementary School probably don't need to learn: their principal’s got skills.
The National Association of Elementary School Principals presented the award to Kominsky, who was one of 60 honored principals from elementary schools and middle schools across America.
“For more than 25 years, our National Distinguished Principals program has recognized the nation’s most accomplished principals — front-line champions for children — who vastly impact individual lives and strengthen schools,” said Gail Connelly, executive director of the NAESP. “We congratulate the NDPs for nurturing positive school culture that meets children’s social, emotional, and academic needs.”
“Programs like this allow us to recognize the contributions that principals make to our teachers, our schools and our communities,” said Bruce R. Adams, president and CEO of VALIC, the company that sponsored the event. "I would like to congratulate all of this year’s distinguished principals and offer our utmost thanks for their commitment and dedication to educating our nation’s children.”
