Theresa Adamec, assistant principal at Lancaster High School, was recently selected as secondary assistant principal of the year by two state education associations.
The School Administrators of New York State and the National Association of Secondary School Principals recognized Adamec for her role in facilitating the school's 60 clubs and activities.
Adamec was an integral member of a team that created a program to identify students considered at-risk for dropping out. Their efforts resulted in a graduation rate of 98 percent for the district.
"Perhaps her greatest gift is that of caring and passion for students. She readily collaborates with teachers in the development of curriculum and instruction that is student-sensitive, fair, achievable and challenging," said Assistant Superintendent Marie Perini.
Adamec will be honored at a May awards ceremony in Albany.
