The Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association (TEPSA) peer-based award recognizes assistant principals for their commitment to student learning as evidenced by exceptional school leadership. This year, TEPSA awarded Assistant Principal of the year for Region 6 to Caldwell Elementary Assistant Principal Andrew Gandrud.
Each year TEPSA selects and honors an administrator for each region in Texas. One of these region principals will be selected as the 2020 National Assistant Principal of the Year for Texas. Supported by Horace Mann, the national award recognizes leaders who are committed to excellence through programs designed to meet the academic and social needs of all students; have firmly established community ties with parents and local business organizations; show strong educational leadership by setting high expectations for school staff and students; and exhibit exceptional leadership in a particular school program.
Honorees will be recognized at the TEPSA Awards Reception Wednesday, June 17, at the Austin Renaissance Hotel.
"We are honored to recognize these exceptional assistant principals for the work they do daily to ensure students on their campus are successful," said TEPSA Executive Director Harley Eckhart.
TEPSA, whose hallmark in educational leaders learning with and from each other, has served Texas PK-8 school leaders since 1917. Member owned and member governed, TEPSA has more than 5,900 members who direct the activities of more than 3 million PreK-8 school children. Learn more at TESPA.
