Woolley Elementary Principal Darryl Wyatt Earns National Recognition

Gwendolyn Woolley Elementary School Principal Darryl Wyatt is among 62 principals from across the U.S. and overseas to be selected for the prestigious National Association of Elementary School Principals’ (NAESP) 2018 class of National Distinguished Principals.

“Today’s principals are tasked with attending to students’ social and emotional needs at greater levels, even while they give their all to drive academic success in their school communities,” said Dr. L. Earl Franks, NAESP’s executive director. “NAESP’s National Distinguished Principals program recognizes the outstanding leadership of highly successful principals and is a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to outstanding school leaders.”

On its website, the organization said, “In his 17 years of principalship, Dr. Darryl C. Wyatt has cultivated a systematic and community-oriented approach to leadership, the impacts of which have rippled far beyond the individual schools which he has served.”

NAESP will celebrate the 62 outstanding principals at an awards banquet in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 12.
