TAYLORVILLE — Matthew Hutchison, principal of Taylorville High School, won the Illinois Principal Assocation’s (IPA) Principal of the Year award for the Abe Lincoln region.
IPA accepts nominations for various honors, including Principal of the Year, and a vote determines the recipient of the award.
“There are different regions in the state of Illinois, and one of those is Abe Lincoln,” Hutchison explained, “and that’s the region where I was nominated by my peers and fortunate to receive the award, so I’m very excited about that.”
The District announced the honor during the communications portion of the monthly board meeting Tuesday, June 28.
“I’m super honored to be recognized,” Hutchison said after the meeting, “but, as principal, it’s not one thing that I do. We are a team of administrators here at Taylorville High School, and educators and students. And everything that makes our school good is because of a group effort, not just one person. But I am very humbled and grateful to be recognized.”
