Principal named Southeast Region Principal of the Year
LELAND, NC (WWAY) — Lincoln Elementary School’s principal Molly White was surprised today with the honor of Southeast Region Principal of the Year.
The entire school, including the county’s superintendent and board members, held a surprise celebration in the school’s parking lot to announce the honor.
“To walk outside and see 600 children and about 70 amazing adults is just the best surprise you could ever have,” said White.
White has 21 years experience as a teacher and administrator and has served as Lincoln’s principal for the past two years.
The southeast region is comprised of 12 school districts and 250 schools. White will now compete against seven other regional winners for the title of North Carolina Principal of the Year. The state winner will be announced in May.
