Dawson County Junior High School Principal Connie Stovall was selected last week as the 2019 National Distinguished Principal by the National Association of Elementary School Principals. She will represent Georgia’s middle level principals during a two-day conference event in Washington D.C. this fall. According to Dr. Bob Heaberlin, executive director of the Georgia Association of Middle School Principals (GAMSP), Stovall was nominated and selected by Georgia principals through a statewide search process conducted by GAMSP. Stovall became principal of Dawson County Junior High School in 2018, having previously served as the Secondary Education Director of Forsyth County Schools. “It was a dream to come back to a school before I retired and so I’m just so grateful to be here,” Stovall said.
