September 26, 2018 -  Principal Dara Bennett of Pierce County High School in Blackshear is Georgia’s Principal of the Year. She was named 2018 Georgia Principal of the Year by the National Association of Secondary School Principals. She has served as Principal of Pierce County High School since 2013, and was Assistant Principal for 10 years prior. She was in Washington where she visited Georgia’s two U.S. Senators.
“Mrs. Bennett is being honored for her outstanding dedication to students’ success through education and a positive school culture,” said Senator Johnny Isakson, a member of the Senate education committee and former chairman of the Georgia Board of Education. “It’s teachers and administrators like Mrs. Bennett who make all the difference in providing students with the support they need to ensure future success in their education and beyond.”
“Both of my parents were school teachers, so education has always been very important to me,” said Senator David Perdue. “I’m impressed by Principal Bennett’s efforts to develop professional learning communities and bring data-driven instruction to Pierce County High School. Under her leadership, the school’s graduation rates have skyrocketed. Most importantly, students are learning the skills they need to solve complex problems and compete in a competitive global environment. Congratulations to Principal Bennett and Pierce County High School on this honor, and thank you to all of our educators who help Georgia students succeed.”
