#WeLeadNH It is my distinct pleasure to announce that Principal, Mrs. Eris Hersey, has been selected, by our organization, as New Hampshire’s Elementary Principal of the Year for 2020-21.

Members of the selection committee cited, “All stakeholders, in the Somersworth School District, agree that Mrs. Hersey is truly an exceptional school and community leader. She goes above and beyond, on a daily basis, to ensure her school is a place where all students, teachers, staff, and parents feel supported and valued. Her tireless work-ethic, coupled with her collaborative leadership style, has undoubtedly contributed to her ability to build such a strong sense of trust and rapport within the school community.”

Additionally, it was noted that “what was most striking about Eris, as a principal, is her own sentiment that being a principal is an investment and not just a job. This was evident in each of her constituents' statements about her--caring, family, love, advocacy--those were the words used to describe her. She has a well-balanced leadership style, focusing equally on culture/climate and student achievement.” One of her veteran educators shared that “Eris creates an environment of leaders and learners. I’ve been a teacher for thirty years and she is the single best principal I’ve ever worked for.”

Historically, our NH Elementary Principal of the Year, would be invited to attend the National Association of Elementary School Principal’s (NAESP) Conference to be held July 2020. Here they would have the opportunity to engage with school leaders from across the country, gain unique recognition before a national audience, and benefit from complete access to NAESP’s premier professional learning offerings.

Before going to the July conference, recipients of this award would also be recognized at the NH EDies Awards ceremony and at NHASP’s Annual Leadership Academy, in June 2020.

However, due to the pandemic, these events have been cancelled. It is for this reason we ask that, as a community, you please find a creative way of both celebrating and recognizing Eris for her outstanding accomplishments. NHASP will do the same.

Please know that Eris will be recognized at next year’s 2020-2021 NH EDies Awards ceremony, so there will be an opportunity for her school community to come together to honor her at this special recognition ceremony.

Congratulations, Eris! We are proud to have you representing the best of school leadership in the state of New Hampshire.

Executive Director
