WINNIPEG — Three city principals have received awards for their innovation and leadership.
Troy Scott, principal of Acadia Junior High, and Michelle Lawrence, principal of Oak Park High School, and Charles Tinman, principal of Niakwa Place School, are all recipients of Canada’s Outstanding Principals by The Learning Partnership.
Lawrence’s first year teaching was spent at Acadia Junior High where she taught Grade 8 math and science to Scott while he was a student.
Scott began teaching in 2002 at Fort Richmond Collegiate and soon became the one of the division’s youngest principal.
“Whether it be starting my career as a science teacher at Fort Richmond Collegiate or being a leader in this division over the last 10 years, I have always been surrounded by amazing mentors and cheerleaders,” said Scott.
Tinman is an advocate for the arts and an explorer of the unknown, constantly pushing students towards deeper learning.
The three will travel to Toronto to connect with other innovative educators. They will also have the chance to experience a five-day executive leadership training program at the Rotman School of Management.
