Local Principal, Pamela A. Stiles, Among
School leaders honored for sustaining strong
schools during National Principals Month
Pamela A. Stiles is among 61 outstanding
elementary and middle school principals from across the nation and
abroad who have been named as 2013 National Distinguished Principals
(NDP) by the National Association of Elementary School Principals
(NAESP). Stiles is principal of Chichester Central School in
Chichester, New Hampshire. The NDPs were honored Oct. 25 at an
awards banquet at the Capital Hilton Hotel in Washington, D.C., as
part of a two-day program, which for more than 20 years has been
generously funded by VALIC. U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan
provided congratulatory remarks.
Established in 1984, the program recognizes
public and private school principals who make superior contributions
to their schools and communities. The distinguished principals are
selected by NAESP state affiliates, including the District of
Columbia, and by committees representing private and overseas
NAESP Executive Director Gail Connelly
commended the honorees for being exemplars of successful school
leadership. “Only a principal can move a school from good to great,
simultaneously championing children and uplifting the communities
they serve,” she said. “We congratulate this class of NDPs for their

“VALIC is proud to continue its support as
sole sponsor of the National Distinguished Principal’s Award
Program,” said Bruce Abrams, President of VALIC. “This program
allows us to recognize the important role of principals on the
education and development of our nation’s children, our future
leaders. On behalf of VALIC, I congratulate all 61 of this year’s
National Distinguished Principals and extend my deepest thanks for
all that they do.”
October is a particularly fitting month to
acknowledge the work of principals, as legislation has been
introduced in both chambers of congress declaring October 2013
National Principals Month (S. Res. 260 & H. Res. 353). National
Principals Month was established to recognize and honor the
contributions of school principals and assistant principals toward
the success of the nation’s students, and encourage awareness of
