Tallassee High School alumnus and principal Matt Coker has been named District 4 High School Principal of the Year by the Alabama Association of Secondary School Principals and American Fidelity.
Coker is 1990 graduate of THS and has served as principal since 2011.
“It’s always an honor to receive recognition and appreciation for doing your job, especially when it comes from your peers,” Coker said. “I want to thank the administrators of District 4 for allowing me to represent them. However, anytime I am recognized for something good, it is a direct reflection of our local board, my staff, our students and our community in Tallassee.”
Coker was recognized at the 2018 AASSP/AAMSP Fall Conference in November.
“I would like to congratulate Mr. Matt Coker for being selected as the District 4 High School Principal of the Year,” Tallassee City Schools Superintendent Wade Shipman said. “Our school system appreciates the commitment that he has given to this position since he was hired seven years ago. He has provided excellent leadership to his faculty, staff and students, and he has established a very positive learning climate at his school.”
