WARSAW — Warsaw Community High School Principal Troy Akers was recently selected as District 2 Principal of the Year.
The Indiana Association of School Principals annually recognizes outstanding school leaders in each of the 12 Indiana districts who have succeeded in providing high-quality learning opportunities of students. These principals are acknowledged by their peers for the exemplary contributions they have made to the profession. The program honors school principals who have demonstrated excellence.
Akers is completing his 12th year at WCHS and year one of a three-year term as a member of the IASP State Board.
“I have a fantastic team of administrators whom I love and respect that really shares in this award,” said Akers. “Of course, our great teachers, students, counselors, cooks, nurses, bus drivers and custodians make this school community what it is. I’m just happy to be a part of it all. I am very truly humbled. This award is simply an extension of the great work our administrative team does to promote our students, teachers, support personnel and the entire Warsaw community.”
“I have had the privilege and honor of working with Mr. Akers for the past seven years, and throughout that time, I have found him to be most deserving of this distinction,” said Dani Barkey, assistant superintendent for secondary schools.
“We are so excited to learn about Mr. Akers’ recognition as the IASP District 2 Principal of the Year,” said Warsaw Community Schools’ Superintendent Dr. David Hoffert. “His service, dedication and love for the WCHS students, faculty, staff, parents and community are unmatched. He is a role model and professional in every sense of the words. It is an honor to work alongside him and I am thrilled he is being recognized by his peers.”
