The Indiana Association of School Principals (IASP) annually recognizes outstanding school leaders in each of the 12 Indiana districts who have succeeded in providing high-quality learning opportunities for students. These principals are nominated by their peers for the exemplary contributions they have made to the profession.
Troy Akers is in year 13 at Warsaw Community High School and year two of a three-year term as a member of the IASP State Board. Akers emphasizes the importance of the word “all” in the school’s mission statement: “to inspire and equip all students to continuously acquire and apply knowledge and skills while pursuing their dreams and enriching the lives of others.” Further, he credits collaboration with Virginia’s Darden School of Business and the Curry School of Education and the use of Illuminate with improvement in student performance.
Dani Barkey, Assistant Superintendent for Secondary Schools, was at the banquet and congratulated Mr. Akers adding, “I have had the privilege and honor of working with Mr. Akers for many years. He is most deserving of this distinction.”
Dr. David David Hoffert, Superintendent for Warsaw Community Schools also attended the award ceremony and offered, “All students leave WCHS better people and well prepared due to Mr. Akers’ influence.”
