The principal at Kelowna Secondary School found himself a top recipient at this year’s premier’s awards.

Troy White was the winner of the three finalists for the School Leadership category of the Premier’s Awards for Excellence in Education. White was presented the award by Premier John Horgan on Friday.

“All British Columbians benefit from the outstanding efforts of teachers, administrators and support workers,” said Horgan.

“Through their commitment to student success, making schools safe and welcoming places for all, innovative learning approaches and strong leadership, the teachers honoured today are an example of how education professionals can make a lasting impact on peoples’ lives.”

In the press release by the province, White, along side the other nine winners at the awards, were honoured on the same day as World Teacher’s Day.
