Roswell, Ga., – Holcomb Bridge MS Principal Joy Schroerlucke was presented with the 2013-2014 Middle School Outstanding Principal award by the Georgia PTA at the recent Georgia PTA Convention Leadership and Training conference in Atlanta.
The award recognizes principals who provide excellent support of local PTAs by personally participating in the organization and its programs and by encouraging parent participation in the PTA.
“We couldn’t be more pleased that the only middle school principal recognized by the PTA in the state of Georgia is our very own Joy Schroerlucke,” said Holcomb Bridge Middle School PTA Co-president, Deb Dreesman. “We know the positive impact that Joy has made to this school and our district in the last seven years—and now we are proud that everyone else knows it, too.”
Schroerlucke was also recently named the 2013-2014 Georgia Northeast Learning Community Principal of the Year and was one of four finalists for the designation in all of Fulton County. Schroerlucke came to Holcomb Bridge Middle School in 2006 and since that time, has helped lead the school to numerous distinctions, including the designation of Georgia National Lighthouse School to Watch, a Georgia School of Excellence and a Distinguished Title I School.
“I am truly honored to receive this special award celebrating the partnership between our school and our PTA — a partnership I believe in so much,” said Schroerlucke.
“We have seen how student achievement and the development of positive personal characteristics thrive when there is mutual commitment and trust between faculty, students and parents. We will continue to raise the bar for additional student achievement next year, too.”
Prior to coming to Holcomb Bridge MS, Schroerlucke spent 15 years as a middle school teacher, and 18 years as a assistant principal at North Springs, Roswell, Centennial and Chattahoochee high schools.
