Bosse principal receives Excellence in Education Award | Schools
Sheila Huff, principal at Bosse High School, was notified recently that she is the recipient of this year’s Indiana Excellence in Education Award from AdvancED, the world’s largest education community and global leader of school accreditation and improvement. The award is presented in each state to one individual who has demonstrated unparalleled leadership in promoting and advancing excellence in education.
Huff, a 37-year veteran of the EVSC, is not aware of who nominated her for the award, but according to AdvanceED, the nomination letter states: "Mrs. Huff implements school reforms which provide an enhanced learning climate and culture for a professional community of teachers to exhibit their best through professional development and collaboration. This process creates a vital, hospitable learning culture which is instrumental to the learning process and fosters leadership in others as well. Once again, students reap the rewards of a quality education."
Huff, who also serves on the AdvancED Indiana State Council, will be honored at the AdvancED fall conference on Oct. 7, in Indianapolis.
AdvancED is the world’s largest education community, serving more than 30,000 public and private schools and districts across the United States and in more than 70 countries that educate over 16 million students. AdvancED brings together more than 100 years of experience and the expertise of three US-based accreditation agencies — the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI), Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC), and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI).
