KALISPELL - The awards keep rolling in at Glacier High School, but this time an educator picked up the honor.
Principal Callie Langohr was recently honored with the 2012-2013 "AA Principal of the Year" title by the Association of Montana AA Principals.
Callie was surprised with the honor at a recent meeting, and didn't hesitate in recognizing her team.
"I have been fortunate over the past 20 years to work with an excellent team of administrators, teachers and support staff. The credit should also go to them. Additionally, I am privileged to work in a school district with many motivated students and supportive parents."
Glacier High School was recently ranked in the top 10% of high schools nationally in U.S. News and World Report's 2013 annual rankings. This organization ranked over 21,000 schools using rigorous academic criteria.
The school has also recognized by College Board as an Advanced Placement Honor Roll school based upon the number of students taking A.P. courses and their A.P. test pass rate. Glacier was one of only two schools in Montana recognized for this prestigious honor.
Callie has been the principal at Glacier High School since it opened in 2007, and also served as principal at Flathead High School for seven years.
"Callie has been an incredible asset to our local public schools. She is a determined, very focused educator whose collaborative abilities were crucial in the creation of a successful second high school. I think this award could not have come at a better time," Kalispell Schools Superintendent Darlene Schottle added.
