Though she currently serves as the leader of Hogg Middle School, Angela Sugarek has been recognized by the Texas Parent Teacher Association (Texas PTA) as the Elementary Principal of the Year for her service to Durham Elementary School during the 2014–2015 academic year.
Sugarek was one of only five educators from across the state to be honored, and the only elementary principal in the group. She was formally recognized during the Texas PTA’s annual leadership seminar in Dallas over the summer.
“I feel extremely honored,” said Sugarek. “One of my most important responsibilities as a principal is to build bridges between the school and the families that we serve. Being nominated for this award by the Durham PTA and then selected by the Texas PTA shows that the time and effort we spent creating meaningful relationships with families was valued by others, too.”
