ATLANTA – The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) announced Monday that Stephanie Johnson, principal of Maynard Holbrook Jackson High School in Atlanta Public Schools, is a finalist for the 2017 National Principal of the Year.
The honor recognizes principals who excel in educational leadership; while resolving complex problems, developing self and others and providing community service. Johnson is one of three finalists named from across the country who will be recognized during the 2016 NASSP Principals Institute, September 11-14 in Washington, D.C. The winner will be announced during National Principals Month in October.
Johnson has been a high school principal for 10 years, including four at Maynard H. Jackson. In February, Johnson was named Georgia Principal of the Year by the Georgia Association of Secondary School Principals (GASSP).
“I am so appreciative and honored to be named among the top three finalists for the 2017 National Principal of the Year,” said Johnson. “Not only am I thankful for NASSP and GASSP for recognizing our work, I am also thankful for our faculty, staff, parents, business and community partners, as well as our students, for buying into our vision to transform Maynard Jackson High School and the entire Jackson Cluster into a cluster of choice schools in Georgia.”
