Cindy Wilson Named Assistant Principal of the Year
Cindy Wilson, Assistant Principal and Career and Technical Education (CTE) Director for Mount Si High School, was voted the 2013-14 KingCo 3A Assistant Principal of the Year.
Wilson was nominated for her consistently positive and energetic work style. With a four-year commitment to the Freshmen Campus, she helped define its vision and demonstrates steadfast support of its principles. Through leadership in Mount Si’s CTE program, she has helped ensure students have a broad range of educational opportunities and career-related course options from which to choose. Most recently, she’s been involved with the adoption of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education across the district and the implementation of Project Lead The Way curriculum which incorporates hands-on problem solving using STEM concepts.
KingCo League principals voted in strong support of Wilson as this year’s Distinguished League Assistant Principal. She will also be KingCo’s nomination for the Association of Washington School Principa'ls (AWSP) “Assistant Principal of the Year” for the state, to be named later this year.
“Mrs. Wilson is a consistently positive force at Mount Si High School. She is student centered, empathetic in her approach, and always looks for ‘win win’ opportunities with families, students and staff. I am proud to work with a professional who knows this is a student business and who cares about each and every student she comes in contact with,” said Mount Si Principal John Belcher.
Wilson started at Mount Si High School as a teacher for 17 years (1984-2001), covering a wide range of subjects that included: business education, multimedia, language arts, consumer math, leadership, and a class to support at-risk freshmen. For four years, she also worked for the Lake Washington School District as a program director, before returning to college to earn a secondary administration degree from the University of Washington. Wilson rejoined the Snoqualmie Valley School District (SVSD) in 2005 for her principal internship, and has continued as an administrator at MSHS for the past nine years. With husband Ray Wilson (principal at Cascade View Elementary), she has four children and five grandchildren.
“Few people get more joy out of high school than Cindy Wilson -- who you can see almost any night of the week out supporting student activities!” added Belcher. “Our school is fortunate that she is tireless in her support of students and passion for student activities.”
