Tracy Stewart (BScKin'00, BEd'05, MEd'14), former vice-principal at Park Street Elementary School in Fredericton, NB, is the 2016-17 recipient of the Distinguished Vice-Principal of the Year award.

"I was honoured to have been nominated, and then selected, for this award," says Stewart, who is the acting principal at Nashwaak Valley School in Durham Bridge, NB. "I believe that leadership is about serving and inspiring others so that they can rise to their full potential. I hope that I have done this well, and will continue to strive to achieve this throughout the remainder of my career. My success is just a small reflection of the hard work and dedication of our staff who go above and beyond every day to help our students succeed. I feel privileged each and every day to work closely with other educators in the best interests of our children."

Presented by the Canadian Association of Principals, the award goes to educators who demonstrate leadership in school administration. Only one vice-principal across the country receives the honour each year.

"Anglophone West School District is fortunate to have such strong educational leaders like Tracy Stewart in our schools," says David McTimoney (BSc'94, MEd'00). "Tracy provides invaluable support, dedication and leadership to the students and families at Park Street Elementary School.

The award was presented on May 25 in Saskatchewan at the association's annual conference.
