The Liberty Middle School community has long been proud of its leadership, but the school was recently recognized outside its family.
The annual Georgia Association of Middle School Principals fall conference honored Liberty with four honors, including naming Connie Stovall as District 14’s outstanding principal.
Liberty’s Robin Sweat earned the District 14 Outstanding Assistant Principal Award and went on to win for the state as well.
Sweat, who advances to the national competition, said she is “humbled by this award” and is looking “forward to representing Georgia nationally in the months ahead.”
In addition, Liberty won the 2013-2016 Effective Middle School Program award for its iTeam initiative.
The iTeam will hold the designation for three years as an initiative that exemplifies the philosophy of middle school, while assuring academic success for students, Stovall said.
Liberty also received the 2013 Educational Patron award for Vulcan Materials.
“We are honored to receive all of these recognitions,” Stovall said. “Vulcan’s support has been vital in many of the programs we offer here, and we sincerely appreciate their continued efforts to provide these experiences for our students.”
