Wisconsin's (and Ripon's) best honored in Washington, D.C.

Myra Misles-Krhin speaks at the National Distinguished Principals Program in Washington, D.C.

Being the best comes with its perks — just ask Barlow Park Elementary School Principal Myra Misles-Krhin.

In March, Misles-Krhin was named 2010 Wisconsin Elementary School Principal of the Year by the Association of Wisconsin School Administrators (AWSA).

Along with the honor of this award comes a trip to the National Distinguished Principals Program in Washington D. C., from which she returned a few weeks ago.

More than just a fun trip, the program offered Misles-Krhin the opportunity to network with other top principals from throughout the United States as well as continue to learn ways to be the best principal she can be.

The program included two days of activities, but Misles-Krhin, her husband and daughter stayed a few extra days to “take in the sights” of our nation’s capitol.

On the first day of the program, the Barlow principal met National Association of Elementary School Principal Regional 6 Director Mark White, as well as several principals from Iowa and Michigan.
