At their annual conference, the Wyoming Association of Elementary and Middle Schools named Pinedale Elementary School Assistant Principal Janel Scurlock as the 2018 Assistant Principal of the Year. Mrs. Scurlock was nominated by PES principal Greg Legerski.
In his nomination letter, Mr. Legerski said, "Janel is focused on the right work and is willing to do whatever it takes to improve our system. She is visible and she builds strong working relationships with staff and students. This helps to ensure every student has a strong advocate at school. Pinedale Elementary School considers ourselves fortunate to have Mrs. Scurlock as our assistant principal."
"Janel is an outstanding educator and leader" said SCSD 1 Superintendent Jay Harnack. "Her passion for her profession and her students is obvious to anyone who meets Janel. She rightly deserves this recognition. This level of leadership is invaluable to our district, and as a result, our students, our schools, and Sublette County School District 1 are vastly improved as a result of her efforts."
This is Mrs. Scurlock’s fifth year as an assistant principal, all of which have been with PES. Mrs. Scurlock was previously an ELL teacher and coordinator for the district.
