Northeast Nebraska Principal Honored

SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. (AP) - A South Sioux City elementary school principal has been honored as the state's best by a national group.

The Sioux City Journal reports that Covington Elementary Principal Sheri Fillipi received the National Distinguished Principal Award for Nebraska on Friday. She will attend a conference in Washington, D.C.,
in October with the other 49 winners.

The award is given out by the National Association of Elementary School Principals. Educators nominate principals they believe exemplify quality leadership in education in each region of their state. There are five regions in Nebraska.

Fillipi was nominated by Sarah Williams, principal at McAndrew Elementary School in Ainsworth, Neb. She then applied for the state award and was notified in December that she had won.
