MONTROSE, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- A principal in Montrose has been given not one, but two awards for his efforts at Centennial Middle School.
Centennial Middle School Principal Joe Simo was awarded the Colorado Middle School Principal of the Year, and has also been named the Secondary School Principal of the year by CASE, the Colorado Association of School Executives.
Simo says he’s focused a lot of his efforts on improving the behavior and character of his students.
"I would say, being able to represent them, is the reason why I received this award. I try to be humble, and I couldn't do anything without my amazing staff here at Centennial, and the students," said Joe Simo, Principal at Centennial Middle School.
He'll attend the awards ceremony later this month, and he'll also represent Colorado in Washington D.C. at the National Principal Convention later this fall.
