Newton-Conover City Schools’ own recently-minted Dr. Heather Mullins, Chief Academic Officer, has received the distinguished honor of Western Carolina University’s Don Chalker Award for Excellence in Educational Leadership.
The Don Chalker Award is given to the graduate student in the Master’s of School Administration and the Doctorate in Educational Leadership programs in alternating years who demonstrates the most outstanding promise and potential as an educational leader. Dr. Mullins was chosen as the only recipient in the Doctorate in Educational Leadership program in the last two years.
Of additional note, this award is issued to someone “who excels in scholarship and demonstrates promise in the field of administration. The recipient’s name will be placed on a plaque, which is on permanent display.”
We are so proud of Dr. Mullins for this remarkable achievement!
