Congratulations to Mr. Michael Browne, principal of Pocomoke Elementary School, who was surprised this afternoon with a celebration of the announcement that he was named Maryland's National Distinguished Principal for 2017! 

Mr. Steve Hagenbuch from the Maryland Association of Elementary School Principals (MAESP) announced Mr. Browne had won the honor at a special surprise celebration at Pocomoke Elementary School this afternoon. See photos from the event below.

Mr. Browne will be honored as part of the the National Distinguished Principals Class of 2017, who will be recognized at the National Association of Elementary Principals (NAESP) conference in October.

NAESP's National Distinguished Principals program honors outstanding elementary and middle-level administrators who ensure that America's children acquire a sound foundation for lifelong learning and achievement. The program was established in 1984 to recognize and celebrate elementary and middle-level principals who set high standards for instruction, student achievement, character, and climate for the students, families, and staffs in their learning communities.

Each year, NAESP congratulates principals from across the nation in both public and private schools and schools from the United States Departments of Defense Office of Educational Activity and the the United States Department of State Office of Overseas Schools for their exemplary achievements.
