Principal of the Year!

In a surprise announcement at Logan, the Spokane Elementary School Principals Association (SESPA) named Brent Perdue the Dick Stannard Distinguished Elementary Principal of the Year for 2019.

The award, named for a much-loved Spokane Public Schools principal who passed away in 1996, honors the SPS elementary principal who shows purposeful leadership, excels at instructional leadership and resource development, and possesses exemplary interpersonal skills. Principals are nominated by their peers.

His nominators described Brent as “a dynamic, instructional leader who truly cares about making a difference in his community. He consistently leads and models with the purpose of empowering his students. He works tirelessly to help staff grow, develop and deliver an outstanding education to every student by carefully using research and data.

“Brent is thoughtful and articulate in the way he presents ideas and believes that all kids can learn. His servant leadership is exemplary and a model for other principals.”

Thank you to sponsor Inspirus Credit Union for making this program possible, and to SESPA and Luigi's for supporting this award.

Congratulations, Brent!
