October is National Principals Appreciation Month. Here in the Newton-Conover City Schools, we are fortunate to have fantastic principals leading our staff and students each day. We are also blessed to have strong Instructional Coaches and Assistant Principals helping to lead the charge to make sure our campuses are safe, nurturing places where students are able to learn to their greatest potential. All of our building-level leaders are true servant-leaders who understand that their role is to attend to the needs of a variety of stakeholders on a daily basis. During this month in honor of what we are calling "Admin Appreciation Month", our school system wants to honor these folks and shine a spotlight on them to let them know how much we appreciate them as professionals and as people. Please join us in honoring these folks for the difficult work they do!!!! Today Dr. Gabriel and N-CCS recognizes Dr. Rosanna Whisnant, Principal of North Newton Elementary.
Dr. Whisnant has returned to her roots as a former elementary school teacher and principal. Most recently she served as Student Services Director for Newton-Conover City Schools and before that, principal at Newton-Conover Middle School. During her tenure at Newton-Conover Middle School, she was named Principal of the Year for our system. She is a dynamic leader with a track record of high student performance. She is a great asset to the North Newton community.
