Golden Apple presents Principal of the Year award

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Dr. Heidi Houy was surprised today as the Golden Apple Principal of the Year award was given out. 

Houy has been principal at Roosevelt Community Education Center for 3 years. She believes she wouldn't have won the award without help form her staff. 

"I do what I do because I love the kids and I love the staff. We have a collaborative staff. And we say all the time, Roosevelt is family. And we really mean that," Houy said. 

Houy says one of her personal goals is to close the divide between the school and its community. Roosevelt was one of the only schools to participate in Stroll on State.
