Lopez leaders named Principals of the Year

Lopez Middle School Principal Dr. Barry Lanford has been named Principal of the Year by The Texas Association of Secondary School Principals (TASSP) Region 20. Lopez Assistant Principal Pete Darnall has been named Assistant Principal of the Year.

The Region 20 members voted on these outstanding leaders at the March meeting.

Lanford and Darnall are excellent administrators who are dedicated to their students and staff. Dr. Lanford was awarded the H-E-B Excellence in Education award in February. Both Lanford and Darnall agreed to be incentives for a school fundraiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Dr. Lanford and Mr. Darnall were good sports as students purchased strips of duct tape and whip cream cupcakes to “Stick it to Leukemia” and “Whip Leukemia” on the Lopez concourse.

TASSP Region 20 will honor Lanford and Darnall June 2014 to give them time to apply for State honors.
