The Indiana Association of School Principals (IASP) annually recognizes outstanding school leaders in each of the 12 Indiana districts who have succeeded in providing high-quality learning opportunities for students. These principals are acknowledged by their peers for the exemplary contributions they have made to the profession. The program honors school principals who have demonstrated excellence. This week, Troy Akers, principal for Warsaw Community High School, was selected as District 2 Principal of the Year!
Mr. Akers is completing year 12 at Warsaw Community High School and year one of a three-year term as a member of the IASP State Board. He is quick to give credit to his team by acknowledging, “I have a fantastic team of administrators whom I love and respect that really shares in this award. Of course, our great teachers, students, counselors, cooks, nurses, bus drivers, and custodians, make this school community what it is! I’m just happy to be a part of it all.” Mr. Akers went on to add, “I am very truly humbled! This award is simply an extension of the great work our administrative team does to promote our students, teachers, support personnel, and the entire Warsaw Community.”
