Finch Elementary Principal Kim Harmon has been named the 2013 Dick Stannard Distinguished Elementary Principal of the Year. The surprise announcement was made on Tuesday afternoon at Camp Finch on the on the old Westview campus.
“She is truly an educational leader for all of us,” Cooper Principal Rona Williams wrote about Harmon in her nomination. “Her commitment to her staff and students is second to none.”
Those who nominated her describe Harmon as innovative and well respected. Williams specifically cited Harmon's development of spreadsheets for data analysis and her efforts to increase parent involvement. One resounding theme in nominations is how Harmon has handled the transition as Finch moved to Westview and Woodridge during the school's renovation.
