♦ Colorado & National Secondary Principal of the Year ♦

Our very own Dr. Tom Dodd was selected as the 2016 Colorado Middle Level and Secondary Principal of the Year by the Colorado Association of School Executives (CASE) and the Colorado Association of Secondary School Principals (CASSP). As Colorado's nominee for the National Secondary Principal of the Year award given by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), Dr. Dodd then became 1 of 3 national finalists joining conference calls with the NASSP and Lesher students, parents, and staff, submitting addendum essays, participating in panel discussions, and interviewing with a group of distinguished judges from the education community and NASSP staff in Washington, DC. He was then recognized as the 2017 National Principal of the Year in a surprise announcement at Lesher during National Principals Month! We're so proud to have Dr. D as the captain of our ship.
