The Principal of the Year award recognizes outstanding principals who have succeeded in providing high-quality learning opportunities for students as well as demonstrating exemplary contributions to their schools and communities.

2019 Principal of the Year Anne Lynaugh

Being the principal of two schools is no easy feat. Yet, Anne Lynaugh has served in this capacity with a “masterful” combination of grace and grit.

As master principal of Millennia Elementary and Millennia Gardens Elementary, Anne must manage the personalities of both schools while ensuring the success of her students and developing great leaders among her staff. Anne is highly respected by her peers, which has earned her a number of distinctions, including Elementary Guidance Principal of the Year, the Elementary STEM Principal of the Year, Innovative Principal of the Year from Florida (competing now for the national award) and so much more.

When asked how she can run two schools, she shared, “My inspiration comes from the good people who work hard every day to provide the best for our students. If you think my hands are full running two schools, you should see my heart.”
