Jefferson High School principal wins outstanding principal award


The Golden Apple Foundation awarded Jefferson High School's Don Rundall the eighth annual Puri Family Outstanding Principal Award.

Rundall received $1,500 for the school and $500 in Volcano Falls gift certificates to award students, compliments of the Puri Family. Next year, and elementary school principal will be recognized.

A student nominator said of Mr. Rundall, "In all my years of going to school, Mr. Rundall has been one of my best principals I have ever had...Mr. Rundall does more than he is expected to do for his job, he listens to the students and tries to solve the problems right away and other students who haven't talked to him before don't' feel afraid to go talk to him about school or doing a project for the school because of what other kids have told each other about him."

Previous winners of the Puri Family Outstanding Principal award are:

  • Randy Larson of Carlson Elementary
  • Judy Rigby of Hononegah High School
  • Mike Francis of Haskell Elementary
  • Tom Hoffman of Pecatonica High School
  • Matt Vosberg of South Beloit Sr. High School
