MESPA Division Leadership Award


The Division Leadership Award is an annual recognition made by each of the 12 MESPA divisions and the Retired Principals of MESPA (RPM). The award expresses appreciation to the many outstanding individuals in the principalship who have contributed generously to improving education, their communities, and their profession. They serve as role models and sources of inspiration to other principals and educators.


Any MESPA member may nominate a peer for consideration; Division Presidents and Presidents-Elect then facilitate the selection process within each division. 

Congrats to our 2022 Division Leadership Award Recipients!
