East High Principal Named Principal of the Year!
Principal of East High School
The Ohio Alliance of Black School Educators honored East Principal Sonya Gordon as Principal of the Year Saturday, April 14, at its Principal Appreciation and Student Recognition Banquet in Columbus.
The banquet’s theme was “Educate, Engage and Empower: The Time is Now” and it featured Dr. Romules Durant, Toledo Public Schools superintendent, as keynote speaker. Gordon was nominated by OABSE’s Youngstown affiliate.
Gordon, a 1991 graduate of East High School, joined the Youngstown City School District as a principal this year following a national search.
Gordon previously served as curriculum consultant for the Cuyahoga County Educational Service Center. Prior to that, she taught in the Akron Schools for 11 years and served for five years in that system as an assistant principal and a principal of schools that struggled with low state test scores. Gordon worked as part of the team that turned around those previously struggling Akron schools.
