Canutillo Principal Honored With National Award

On Tuesday, the U.S. Department of Education announced that Northwest Early College High School Principal Tracy Speaker-Gerstheimer is one of only 11 recipients of the 2018 Terrel H. Bell Award for Outstanding School Leadership — one of the highest honors given by the agency.

“Northwest Early College is an exemplary institution, and Ms. Speaker-Gerstheimer is a big part of the quality instruction that is happening there,” said Canutillo ISD Superintendent Dr. Pedro Galaviz. “I am happy that more people nationwide are now aware of the great things happening in El Paso and Canutillo.”

Named for the second U.S. Secretary of Education, the Bell Award honors school leaders who are committed to education and improving outcomes for all students. The award is part of the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program.

Principals are nominated by their school communities during the final stages of the National Blue Ribbon Schools application process.

“We know strong school leadership is a driving force behind ensuring students and teachers succeed,” said Secretary DeVos. “I’m pleased to recognize these talented Bell Award winners who are helping to lead needed transformations at the most local level. Through their leadership, vision and effort, countless students – regardless of their family income, race or language proficiency – are able to excel.”

Speaker-Gerstheimer will join the 10 other national education leaders during the National Blue Ribbon Schools awards ceremony on November 7 in Washington, D.C.
