VAIL, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Nemer Hassey is the assistant principal of Cienega High School and he has recently been named the 2014 National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP)/Virco Assistant Principal of the Year representing Arizona.

"Hassey is in the top one percent of all assistant principals, respected by teachers, support staff, parents, students, district administration and the extended Cienega community due to his collaborative leadership and tireless work ethic," stated the Cienega H.S. Principal Dr. Trina Pena.  "He has helped the school exceed all expectations including becoming an Excelling School with multiple accolades."

For the last 13 years Hassey has also been involved in all aspects of campus leadership, and his football coaching style is known not only at the school level, but across Arizona. 

"Our campus is safe and education results are high because of his leadership," stated colleague Kelley Hadden, in a recent Vail District release.

"We are extremely proud of Nemer and the essential role he plays as an educational leader in his school, district and community," said Deb Duvall, ASA Executive Director. This award speaks to the high caliber of administrators in our state who work tirelessly to improve the educational attainment of our students and help them focus on their future goals."

According to the release Hassey has not only been involved with the curriculum and instruction, assessment, athletic administration, but was instrumental in the implementing of the Arizona Career and College Readiness Standards at Cienega H.S.  This effort gained the school and the Vail Unified School District an ‘A' rating from the Arizona Department of Education. 

Each year assistant principals across the U.S. and the District of Columbia and the Department of Defense Education Activity program are picked to receive this honor; sponsored by NASSP and Virco, Inc.  Selection is based on collaborative leadership, curriculum, instruction and assessment as well as school personalization – all are aspects of the NASSP's Breaking Ranks school improvement framework.
