Whereas, annually, the National Association of Secondary School Principals and Virco Inc. cosponsor the National Distinguished Associated High School Principal of the Year award which honors outstanding high school principals in each state and on a national basis, and
Whereas, the Vermont Principals’ Association (VPA) administers the selection process for the state winner who the association honors at its Summer Leadership Academy at Killington, and
Whereas, in the fall, the winner is flown to Washington, D.C. for a recognition ceremony honoring all the state winners from whom one will be selected as the National Distinguished Associated Principal of the Year and whose school will be awarded a $5,000.00 support grant, and
Whereas, from the many excellent local nominees for the 2005 Vermont National Distinguished Associate Principal of the Year, the VPA has selected Jim Avery, the associate principal of Otter Valley Union High School in the Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union (RNSU), and
Whereas, according to RNSU Superintendent Bill Mathis, the award was well deserved, and he described the winner as “an asset to Otter Valley and the state as a whole,” and
Whereas, Jim Avery was greatly honored to learn of his designation as Vermont’s National Distinguished Associate Principal of the Year but gave much of the credit to his colleagues at Otter Valley Union High School, now therefore be it
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives:
That the General Assembly congratulates Jim Avery on his designation as Vermont’s National Distinguished Associate Principal of the Year, and be it further
Resolved: That the secretary of state be directed to send a copy of this resolution to Jim Avery at Otter Valley Union High School.
