MOULTRIE — Sharon Veasey, assistant principal at C. A. Gray Junior High School, has been named the 2014-2015 Georgia Association of Secondary School Principals “Middle School Assistant Principal of the Year.”
Veasey is being recognized for her outstanding accomplishments as a school leader for her work at C.A. Gray Junior High School, according to a press release from the Colquitt County School System. She was recognized at Georgia Association of Secondary School Principals annual Fall Conference in Savannah.
Since C.A. Gray Junior High houses both eighth and ninth graders, Veasey would have been a valid contender for the middle or high school recognition.
“I am humbled by this honor,” Veasey said. “This would not be possible if not for the hard work and dedication of the teachers and staff of C.A. Gray Junior High. We are a team that is focused on doing what is best for our students.”
Veasey, as one of four finalists, was interviewed by an eight member principal committee that included the current Assistant Principal of the Year. Veasey will serve on this committee next year as part of the prestige of the award. She will receive a $500 award sponsored by Horace Mann.
C. A. Gray Junior High School Principal Frederick Smith said he
was very excited to nominate Veasey for the award.
“She is a great role model for students and staff alike,” Smith said. “She is consistent in her approach to do what is best for students while being compassionate to their needs. She is posed to be a great principal. We are truly the beneficiaries in this honor; we have Ms. Veasey.”
Veasey earned her bachelor’s in business education, a master’s in business education and a master’s in education administration, and her educational specialist in education leadership all from Valdosta State University.
