|Congratulations to Dr. Amy Duke for being named Georgia's 2013 National Distinguished Principal by the Georgia Association of Elementary School Principals (GAESP), the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP), and the US Department of Education. The surprise announcement came during a staff meeting at Springdale Wednesday, May 15, when GAESP Executive Director Hal Beaver presented Dr. Duke with the award. In November, Dr. Duke will travel to Washington, D.C. for an awards ceremony at the White House. "There are a lot of great principals in this state and a lot of great principals here in Bibb County, and for them to choose me to represent them in this way is just a huge honor," Dr.Duke said. "Really it's about the staff here at Springdale. We have an amazing group of teachers and staff members ‐ they're very hard workers and so the credit goes to them. You can't be a great principal without a great staff and great students and supportive parents." Dr. Duke has been principal at Springdale since 2006.|
