One of our long-time partnerships, Lovell High School, recently received an award for Wyoming Principal of the Year. Principal Scott O’Tremba was deemed the award by the Wyoming Secondary Schools Principals Association, and is now eligible for consideration for the National Principal of the Year.
O’Tremba has been Lovell’s principal for eight years, previously being a high school principal at Kemmerer, and also a teacher and guidance counselor.
He was nominated by Dan Coe, superintendent of Big Horn County School District No. 2. “I think Mr. O’Tremba is very deserving of the recognition with his commitment and focus on students. He is an outstanding high school principal,” Coe told recent news.
O’Tremba received a plaque created by students for the award. He will be going to Washington, D.C., in the fall, where he will be recognized for the award along with other Principals around the nation.
O’Tremba has made his focus on including staff, students and parents in decisions to better the school by creating a team of advisors. He has received a lot of support and involvement in the community around Lovell. O’Tremba gives the success of the school to staff, students and parents, and mentions that the school received three advanced proficiency awards in their last accreditation report.
“I love our kids and I love our teachers and that makes it so much easier for me. For me it’s been about hiring really good teachers, keeping really good teachers and working with them in a way that they can trust,” O’Tremba said to news reporters.
As an ongoing 20-year partnership with Lovell High School, we are proud to be associated with such a high-performing school and think that there couldn’t be a principal more deserving.
Congratulations Principal O’Tremba and Lovell High School!
