MASSP 2017 Principal of the Year Chris Fleming and MASSP Executive Director Dr. Ronnie McGehee

     The Mississippi Association of Secondary School Principals (MASSP) selected Lewisburg High School’s Chris Fleming as the 2017 Mississippi High School Principal of the Year. Fleming was recognized by the DCS Board of Education and made the journey to Washington, DC as Mississippi’s nominee for the National High School Principal of the Year.

     This was the second time Fleming was recognized by this organization with a top honor. In 2013, he was named the MASSP Middle School Principal of the Year. At that time, he was Principal of Lewisburg Middle School. Top principals are awarded the recognition based on their impact in the areas of collaborative leadership, curriculum, instruction and assessment, and personalization of the learning environment.

     Superintendent Cory Uselton, a previous winner of the High School Principal of the Year award, said, "Mr. Fleming has vision, follow through, and a true calling to serve students by putting them at the forefront of his decision making.  His students and teachers perform at the highest level, and they follow the example that Mr. Fleming sets through his leadership.  He is a great representative of our school district, and I am glad that he has received this recognition.”

     In accepting the award, Fleming said, “I am blessed to work with an amazing teaching staff and awesome students.”
