Associate Principal Drew Daniel of Tascosa High, has been recognized as the Texas Assistant Principal of the Year by The Texas Association of Secondary School Principals, according to an article from the Amarillo Globe News.

In a news release from Amarillo Independent School District, "Drew Daniel represents the best leadership and certainly TASSP's student-first motto" AISD Chief Leadership and Support Officer David Bishop said.

Bishop was principal of Tascosa during the 2016-2017 school year when Daniel was nominated. Bishop says Daniel "is a strong advocate for the students of Tascosa High School and a leader who models the characteristics we're working to develop in our scholars, which is to empower them to be thinkers, communicators, collaborators, and contributors."

Holding a master's degree in administration, Daniel has been assistant principal for 11 years, the last six being at Tascosa.

"We have tremendous administrators and educators in AISD," says Bishop. "You want to see them rise through the ranks if they aspire to do so. When an educator does and then is recognized with such a significant honor as this, it reinforces our belief that we have the very best in AISD.”

Outstanding principals and assistant principals are nominated for this honor by their peers annually. The top principals are selected from each of the state's 20 regional education service centers and they compete for the national title from the National Association of Secondary Principals.
