DOLGEVILLE, N.Y. -- The principal at Dolgeville High School has been named the 2019 New York State Principal of the Year.
The School Administrators Association of New York State honored Timothy Jenny with the award, which is given annually to recognize outstanding principals.
The award is given to those who have succeeded in providing high-quality learning opportunities for students, as well as someone who demonstrates exemplary contribution to the profession.
Jenny was named because he shows that he “truly cares for his students,” and has implemented a number of programs to further the educational experience for his school district.
He said in a statement, "As a principal, I am always looking for ways to let students and staff know that we genuinely care about them, that we are a family, and that we will do what it takes to help everyone succeed."
Jenny will be honored for his accomplishments at an awards ceremony on May 3 at the Century House in Latham, New York.
