Dedicated to transforming school culture and maintaining the pride of Crusader Nation, Rochester's Cheryl Gambaro wears many hats, including Middle Level Principal of the year. The Reuther Middle School principal was recently named the 2013-14 Middle School Principal of the Year – an annual honor awarded by the Michigan Association of Secondary School Principals (MASSP).
MASSP is pleased to congratulate the 2013-14 Michigan Principal of the Year – Gary Jensen, Jr. from Lakeview High School in Montcalm County. Superintendent Kyle Hamlin submitted Gary's nomination and multiple letters of support were also included from colleagues, teachers and community members. In reading the nominations, it was clear that Gary is making a large impact not only in the lives of his students and staff, but also the Lakeview school culture and community.
