Frank Meyer recognized in DC as Indiana Assistant Principal of the Year

Frank Meyer, assistant principal at Avon High School, traveled to Washington, D.C. last week to be honored as the Indiana Assistant Principal of the Year as part of the NASSP/Virco National and State Assistant Principals of the Year Program.

During his time in D.C., Meyer spent a day on Capitol Hill meeting with local legislators to discuss education legislation and its impact on schools. Meyer met with both of Indiana’s senators, Joe Donnelly and Dan Coats.

The Assistant Principals Forum also featured a black-tie awards gala, highlighted by a keynote address from US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.

“There are no great schools without great teams, without great principals, and without great assistant principals,” Duncan said. “As a parent, thank you so much. If we could find ways to clone you guys, clone your expertise … we have a chance to take education to an entirely different level in this country.”

Each assistant principal was invited on stage to receive their award and be formally recognized for their achievements.

As part of the three-day forum, Meyer also participated in numerous professional development opportunities led by NASSP staff. During the sessions, the assistant principals of the year were able to share and receive best practices with assistant principals from around the nation.

This event occurred during National Assistant Principals Week, which was formally declared by a Senate Resolution to be March 31 to April 4. During the week, NASSP and others honored and recognized the contributions of assistant principals to the success of students in schools across the United States.

Each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the Department of Defense Education Activity selected one assistant principal to represent their state. From these state winners, three finalists were named as contenders for the National Assistant Principal of the Year award in January.
