Principal of the Year is 'all in' for students

Described as "all in" for her students and school community, Edneyville Elementary School's Marsha Justice was honored as Henderson County public school system's Principal of the Year during a School Board meeting Monday.

Assistant Superintendent Scott Rhodes said the Principal of the Year is among the most significant awards the school system gives because it's voted on by all the principals.

Justice has been Edneyville's principal since Jan. 2, 2018. Before that she had served as assistant principal at Apple Valley Middle for 10 years. Justice began her teaching career as a biology teacher at East Henderson High in 1997, upon graduating from Western Carolina University with her Bachelors of Science. She then taught biology for five years at Saint Stephens High School before returning to Henderson County.

"She is all in for her students, she is all in for her school community," schools Superintendent John Bryant said. "She is a tremendous model for her fellow peers and is among the finest in our profession and certainly among the finest of her colleagues here in Henderson County schools."

In another recognition, Hendersonville Mayor Barbara Volk presented the Land of Sky Regional Council Excellence in Public Service to Bryant.
