A Houston County principal has received some of the highest praise from his peers in the profession.
Jesse Davis, principal at Feagin Mill Middle School, was named Georgias 2013 National Distinguished Principal. The award honors exemplary elementary and middle-level principals who set the pace, character and quality of the education children receive during their early school years, according to a Houston schools news release.
As part of the honor, Davis has been invited to a two-day event in Washington, D.C., in October, which includes a reception at the U.S. Department of State.
I was surprised and humbled to receive this recognition, Davis said in the release. I am excited to know that through this award, attention will be given to the great things that happen at Feagin Mill Middle School each and every day.
Without a doubt I know that any recognition that I receive is simply due to my good fortune in serving as principal at such a great school.
