An Upstate administrator was recently awarded with the annual top honor for high school principals.
Robbie Binnicker, principal of Wren High School in Anderson School District One, was named the 2012 South Carolina High School Principal of the Year by the South Carolina Association of School Administrators, according to a report by FOX Carolina.
Selected from a field of candidates from across the state, Binnicker’s colleagues can’t say enough good things about him.
“He is an outstanding educator who is a strong advocate for children,” said Molly Spearman, executive director of the South Carolina Association of School Administrators. “His personal approach has transformed his school in a multitude of ways.”
“He is the kind of principal every parent would wish for their child and every district administrator would choose to serve as an example for others wishing to enter that area of professional education,” said Dr. Wayne Fowler, superintendent of Anderson District One.
Binnicker beat out the other finalist, Jo Mayer from White Knoll High School in Lexington District One to win his award.
