Lake County's Sheryl Gray Recognized as Assistant Principal of the Year

U.S. Representative Randy Hultgren (IL-14) today congratulated Sheryl Gray, an educator at Prairie Trail School in Wadsworth, for being named Illinois Assistant Principal of the Year.

Following are Rep. Hultgren’s prepared remarks:

I rise today to recognize a caring and innovative educational leader from Illinois’ 14th Congressional District.

For her hard work, Sheryl Gray was named Illinois Assistant Principal of the Year by the Illinois Principals Association.

Since she began at Prairie Trail School in Wadsworth, she has created and implemented fresh ideas that bring together students and their families in education.

Her brainchild, Partnership and Achievement Lead to Success, or PALS, has been extremely successful in educating and empowering at-risk children.

She has also devoted her time to improving Prairie Trail School’s special education program, and increasing school attendance by supporting families who are in need.

A servant to the Lake County community, Sheryl Gray is an inspiration to her students and to the next generation of educators.

With more leaders like Sheryl in schools, all of our children will be able to reach their true potential.
