AP Kyle Wright was named the Region 7 Assistant Principal of the Year recently. The nominees were reviewed and voted on by Texas Association of Secondary School Principal (TASSP) members.

      “I am very proud that Mr. Wright has been recognized,” Principal Jeremy Chilek said. “He is an outstanding administrator.”

    Assistant principals are required to have been in an administrative capacity for at least 3 years and be nominated by someone in that district.  Principals are rated on personal excellence, collaborative leadership, curriculum and instruction, and school climate.

  “This award is a testament to great people around me for sure,” Wright said. “Lindale High School has outstanding administrators, starting with Mr. Chilek, who help me to be better each and every day.”

 According to their website, “TASSP seeks to recognize exemplary performance among campus-level administrators in Texas.”

  “My job is working with and helping young people be successful, through serving them and the teachers that instruct them,” Wright said. “It is an honor, and I am humbled to win this award.”

There are roughly 80 qualifying principals from school districts in Region 7. The TASSP requires the assistant principal to work and grow as an administrator amidst teachers, staff and students and create a safe environment for learning. This award shows the growth in an assistant principal in a teaching environment.

  “We are so thankful when one of our students or staff members are recognized by such a well known and respected organization,” Chilek said. “He is so very deserving of this award.”

Wright has been in his position for five years at Lindale High School. He’s been nominated for the past two years for this award.

“The way to do this is to have the best attitude and the best effort you can give each day to be successful,” Wright said. “I feel this award is a celebration of all these things and I am just happy to be a part of such a great team.”
