Caddo Parish Schools announced late last week its 2020 Principals of the Year.
Here are the winners:
- Lynette Hampton, Elementary School Principal of the Year, of North Highlands Elementary School
- Tom Thomas, Middle School Principal of the Year, of Herndon Magnet School
- Dr. Grady Smith, High School Principal of the Year, of Woodlawn High School.
They were chosen based on their continued commitment to academic excellence and increasing opportunities for students. The winners will now advance to compete for the state titles of Principal of the Year in the 2021 competition. State winners will be announced in July of next year at the 14th annual Cecil J. Picard Educator Excellence Symposium and Celebration. Congratulations to all the great principals we have in Caddo Parish, and if you see them on the campus give them a firm handshake for a job well done.
