CASPER, Wyo. — CY Middle School Assistant Principal Randy Bower was recently named the 2022 Assistant Principal of the Year by the Wyoming Association of Secondary School Principals.
“I am honored to be here today representing the Wyoming Association of Secondary School Principals. Each year, the Wyoming Association of Secondary School Principals selects an Assistant Principal of the Year from across the great state of Wyoming,” WASSP Executive Director Ken Griffith said when presenting Bower with the award. “Today I am representing over 160 school administrators as we announce that Mr. Randall Bower is our Assistant Principal of the Year.”
The distinction came as a surprise to Bower, who was unaware he’d received the honor until the celebration and award ceremony at the school.
“I was quite surprised and humbled to receive this award,” he said.
“He is an amazing leader filled with integrity, humor and humility,” Principal Amy Rose said. “He is loved by all. I am honored to work beside him each day.”
Bower was quick to share the spotlight, saying there are many people who have helped him along the way and continue to work alongside him who are deserving of credit.
“I’ve had the opportunity to work and learn from some of the greatest educators in this district — from teaching mentors to teaching partners and teammates, to coaching to administration,” Bower said. “The everyday excellence exhibited by these professionals has been instrumental to my career and development as a person. Our staff is amazing, and I reap the benefits of their skillset daily.”
Bower will join assistant principals from across the country in Washington D.C. in the summer to connect, learn and engage in professional development opportunities.
