Paradise Valley Unified School District has announced two of its principals have been named as semifinalists for the 2016 Rodel Exemplary Principal Award.

Dr. Bennett MacKinney, principal at Echo Mountain Intermediate School, and Andrea Hoffler, a principal at  Vista Verde Middle School, have both been named semifinalists in the contest. The winner is expected to be announced in January 2016.

The Rodel Exemplary Principal Initiative is designed to identify top school principals who will mentor the next generation of school leaders.

To be considered for this recognition, candidates have to show that they have made measurable differences in the lives of their students, parents, staff and local high-need communities, according to a press release.
