The Principal of the Year program recognizes principals that excel in educational leadership, resolving complex problems, developing self and others and community service. The application is an extensive review of the performance of each applicant and their schools. Each finalist will participate in a final interview process in Athens to determine the Georgia Principal of the Year.

The program is sponsored by the National Association of Secondary School Principals, the Georgia Association of Secondary School Principals and Association Member Benefit Advisor (AMBA). The Georgia winner will represent the state in the competition for National Principal of the Year.

GASSP’s 1,300 members across Georgia are extremely proud of the finalists Melton Callahan, executive director of GASSP and JoAnn Bartoletti, executive director of NASSP also offered their congratulations to those principals who personify excellence in providing quality leadership to their school communities.
