Two principals from Kingsport City Schools have been recognized on a national level for demonstrating excellence in school leadership.
Dr. Stacy Edwards and Dr. Brian Partin have been selected as 2019 National Distinguished Principals from Tennessee.
Dr. Stacy Edwards has served as the principal at Johnson Elementary School since 2012. He was selected as the elementary level NDP.
Dr. Brian Partin has served as the principal at Robinson Middle School since 2015. He was selected as the middle level NDP.
“This honor is reflective of the high quality of education in Kingsport and the commitment to excellence that we expect. Both principals are quick to point out the award is not about them, but the great work being done by the teachers in their buildings. I know our community shares in the pride these recognitions represent,” said Kingsport City Schools Superintendent Dr. Jeff Morehouse.
Both school leaders are invited to attend the National Distinguished Principals Awards Ceremony in Washington, D.C. in October.
