Ten of 17 principals chosen for a new state education honor are from the East Valley. Arizona Department of Education started the “Circle of Honor” program to honor the top 1 percent of principals in Arizona elementary and secondary schools.

Recipients were nominated by superintendents and chosen based on student test scores and a commitment to their schools. The honorees were: Connie Erickson at Mesquite Elementary in Gilbert; Mark Knight at Kyrene’s de las Manitas Elementary and Gina Taylor from Kyrene de la Paloma Elementary in Tempe; Julie Kelly at Las S endas Elementary, Catherine Plechette at Poston Junior High and Craig Luketich from Mountain View High in Mesa; Don Heimstra from Grayhawk Elementary and Carol Kendrick at Desert Shadows Middle School and Anthony Capuano from Horizon High in Paradise Valley; and Linda Hough in Desert Springs Elementary in Scottsdale.

The principals will be recognized at the Arizona Business and Education Coalition’s conference on June 20.
