Kansas’ top high school assistant principal got an “attaboy” from his senator in Washington this week.

Sen. Jerry Moran met with Tom Albers, assistant principal at Hays High School, to congratulate him on being selected Kansas High School Assistant Principal of the year. The annual award is presented by the Kansas Association for Secondary School Principals.

In a statement Friday, Moran called Albers a committed and positive leader.

“I commend Tom for his dedication to helping Kansas students reach their full potentials in the classroom and beyond,” Moran said. “I also know first hand how deserving Tom is of this award, because my two daughters attended Hays High School during his tenure.”

Albers has served as assistant principal at Hays since 2002. Before that, he had worked as an assistant principal at Pittsburg High School, and a math teacher and football and basketball coach for schools in Pratt.

He has a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and a master’s in education administration, both from Fort Hays State University.
