The Tennessee Department of Education awards outstanding administrators in education with the Principal of the Year and Supervisor of the Year honors each year.
Weakley County educator Debbie Doster was chosen as a 2011 Supervisor of the Year nominee.
Doster is one of nine individuals across the state chosen for the award. Doster serves as the Weakley County Instructional Supervisor for grades 6 through 12.
The nominees have been identified by peers as demonstrating the leadership and dedication desirable in education professionals. The winners will be named at the annual Tennessee Educational LEADership Conference later this month.
“The forward progress of Tennessee schools relies on the hard work and dedication of our education leaders,” Education Commissioner Timothy Webb said.
“The professionals we recognize today have made noteworthy contributions to the improvement of their school districts, and raising the standards for our students.”
Candidates for these awards are nominated by regional study councils composed of fellow principals and supervisors representing nine regions across the state.
The Supervisor of the Year award honors district-wide administrators who guide improvements in school programming while pursuing higher standards of student academic success.
The Principal of the Year award celebrates school leaders who have implemented outstanding programs resulting in significant school improvement and actively advocated for the improvement of education for Tennessee’s children.
