AHS principal up for national award
The American Association of School Administrators has selected Ashland High School Principal Michelle Zundel as a finalist for the national Women in School Leadership Award.
Two finalists in the principal or central office administrator category and two finalists in the superintendent category were chosen by a panel of distinguished leaders in education. Zundel and the other three finalists will be interviewed at the AASA National Conference on Education in San Diego, Calif., Feb. 26-28. At that time, two award recipients will be selected and honored.
The program is designed to recognize the exceptional leadership of active, front-line female administrators who are making a difference in the lives of students every day. AASA pays tribute to the talent, creativity and vision of outstanding women educational administrators in the nation's public schools. Each candidate is judged on leadership for learning, communication, professionalism and community involvement.
Zundel earned her Bachelor of Arts from Brown University and a masters degree from Harvard University. She has served as an administrator in the Ashland School District for 20 years.
