West Virginia Association of Elementary and Middle School Principals



Posted on October 8th, 2014 by Frank Collier

The West Virginia Association of Elementary and Middle School Principals selected Richmond Elementary Principal Terry Sauvageot, second from left, as the 2014 National Distinguished Principal for West Virginia. She is joined by WVAEMSP President Kate Porter and Frank Collier, executive director.
Richmond Elementary School Principal Terry Sauvageot doesn’t like being in the spotlight, preferring instead to shower attention on her students and staff.
But at the end of the school year, the veteran educator happily accepted a distinguished honor at an awards ceremony because it reflects well on the South Charleston school and community she loves.
During the awards assembly, Sauvageot was named the 2014 National Distinguished Principal for West Virginia by the West Virginia Association of Elementary and Middle School Principals. WVAEMSP officials and Kanawha County Superintendent of Schools Ron Duerring, among others, presented the award to her.
Sauvageot was nominated for the award by a peer and was made aware of that via an email. A selection committee then reviewed her references from fellow teachers, community members and parents. Based on that, the WVAEMSP then made its selection.
