In early November, Magnolia High School Assistant Principal, Randy Harris was named region 6 Assistant Principal of the Year.
Harris attributes his nomination to Magnolia High Schools tremendous success in UIL academics, saying, "It's because of how much effort and work we've done for UIL academics. We're one of the most powerful schools in the area."
"This helps the school get recognition," he added. "The reality is, the school achieved the award because of how well the school is running."
"You always want to spend more time in the classroom, but a lot of times my job is kind of being like a fireman, going wherever I'm called some days" he said, showing just how committed he is to always ensuring excellence at Magnolia High School.
From working with UIL academics, to talking to freshmen about their future, to even doing research on how teachers can improve their lesson plans and grading policies, all on top of his regular responsibilities of discipline and administration, Harris is making Magnolia High School better everyday.
Harris joins principal Jeff Springer as an award winner, following Springer's award as the 2013 principal of the year in the state of Texas.
The process is just beginning for Harris. As the Region 6 Assistant Principal of the year, he will now compete against 20 other Texas Assistant Principals for Assistant Principal of the year for the state of Texas.
If he makes the top three in the state, Harris will be interviewed in Austin, by the group. A winner would be announced later.
