Trojan Good Things is a weekly shout out from #HSSD Superintendent Dr. Stephanie Nehus to individuals in our school community who are doing amazing things! The final week in October is also the last week of National Principals Month. I want to dedicate our shout outs this week to our outstanding group of Principals who work tirelessly to lead, empower, and encourage our students and staff.


“Students who are loved at home come to school to learn. Students who aren’t … come to school to be loved.” This is a quote by Nicholas A. Ferroni, used by the Flippen Group during Capturing Kids Hearts training (CKH is our districtwide focus, and is based on improving student achievement and overall classroom performance through relationship-based strategies) to emphasize the importance of what we do as educators. Our Principals are not only charged with ensuring that our students receive world class learning experiences, and feel loved and valued by all staff members; they are also charged with ensuring that our staff members feel valued and appreciated. They do an outstanding job of this dual role, and it’s no easy task. 


They play the role of boss, parent, coach, friend, and confidante to different audiences multiple times, every day. They take the blame for any single thing that goes wrong across an entire campus. They often hear more about the bad things taking place, than they do the good; and yet - they still show up every morning believing the very best about all students and staff members. They lead with selfless dedication to what is best for this district. 


I couldn’t be more proud of our group of HSSD Principals. Thank you for your leadership and your passion for education, and for choosing to share your talent and leadership abilities here with us. You are at the forefront of your building and every opportunity and/or challenge, and you represent with so much strength our spirit and our commitment to educating generation after generation.  If you have a chance - give your Principal a hug, high five, fist bump, or a warm handshake today; or send them a message of thanks. 


The goal of Trojan Good Things is to communicate all the positives happening in #HSSD. If you have any special events happening in your classes or buildings or if you know of someone we need to give a shout out to, please complete the form at
