A Shelby County high school teacher got a major honor.

Middle College High School principal Docia Generette-Walker was named Tennessee's 2016-2017 Principal of the Year.

During her five year tenure at Middle College High School, Generette-Walker has helped raised expectations across the board for students and faculty. Students are now participating in more advanced courses and succeeding.

Middle College High School was recognized as an award school in 2015 and a National Blue Ribbon School.

“Leaders matter. They have been critical to our children’s success in Tennessee, and both of these women represent excellence in how they lead our schools,” Tennessee Commissioner of Education Candice McQueen said. “We are honored to recognize these leaders, and we hope their example will inspire more of our leaders and schools to help Tennessee’s students achieve their fullest potential.”

Generette-Walker was one of nine finalists selected for the award after being nominated by her peers.
