Principals from Purvis and Hernando Honored in Washington for Leadership Skills
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) this week met with and congratulated Jackie Cuevas of Purvis (left) and Cory Uselton of Hernando, who were in Washington to be honored by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP).
Uselton, principal of DeSoto Central High School, is Mississippi’s High School Principal of the Year, while Cuevas was named Middle School Principal of the Year for her work leading Purvis Lower Elementary School. The NASSP principal of the year awards are based on school principals who demonstrate effective school leadership.
The Mississippi educators attended the Association’s annual State Principals of the Year Institute in Washington. This week-long program brings all middle level and high school principals of the year from the 50 states together for professional development activities, meetings on Capitol Hill and other activities.
