“Our certification programs at WSU Spokane prepare principals, program administrators and superintendents for the complex roles of leadership in today’s schools,” said Joan Kingrey, director of programs in education at WSU. “We know that effective educational leadership is essential to the process of school improvement and increasing academic achievement for all students.”

Honored were Becky Cooke, principal of Evergreen Elementary in the Mead School District, and Jan Rust, executive director of evaluation, certification and training at Spokane Public Schools.
