Plymouth South High School Principal Patricia Fry is one of three finalists for a National Principal of the Year award.
The award is being presented by the National Association of Secondary School Principals.
In June, Fry was named Principal of the Year by the Massachusetts Secondary School Administrators’ Association.
In a press release, the NASSP notes that “before Fry arrived, the school was on warning status by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. But last year, the association gave Plymouth a glowing review.”
Also nominated were principals from Lexington, Nebraska and Cumberland, Rhode Island. “NASSP is delighted to recognize such accomplished principals who have dedicated extraordinary effort to advance student learning,” said NASSP Executive Director JoAnn Bartoletti. “Schools cannot succeed without great leaders committed to the success of each student, and our 2016 finalists clearly model the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that constitute great leadership.”
The finalists will be honored during a September awards breakfast to be attended by dignitaries and policymakers.
