In March, Grosse Pointe North Assistant Principal Kate Murray will be recognized as the administrator of the year by the Michigan Reading Association, according to a Facebook post by Grosse Pointe Public Schools.
Murray is in her second year as an assistant principal after working as a teacher in the high school for about 15 years.
According to the Grosse Pointe Schools Facebook announcement posted Tuesday, the award is being given to Murray for her work to improve literacy in the classroom.
The Michigan Reading Association recognizes five educators annually during its conference. Applicants must demonstrate several qualities including strong leadership, advocacy for reading, evidence of work that is impacting student achievement and being a strong role model.
The Association's annual conference will be in early March in Grand Rapids, which is where the winners will be recognized.
