Principals of the Year

The Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals (MASSP) has selected Ted Huff, principal of Francis Howell Middle School in the Francis Howell School District, as the 2016 Missouri Middle School Principal of the Year and David Pyle, principal at Carl Junction High School, as the 2016 Missouri High School Principal of the Year.  MASSP officially presented the awards during the annual MASSP Spring Conference at the Lodge of Four Seasons, Lake Ozark, Mo., on Monday, March 21, 2016.  They were awarded the recognition based on their impact in the areas of collaborative leadership; curriculum, instruction and assessment; and personalization of the learning environment.

History of Principal of the Year

(Prior to 2000 there was only one Principal of the year.  There was no separation of Middle or High School.  One category was used.  From 2000 to present we have used two categories and celebrated a Middle Level Principal and High School Principal of the Year.)
