Mentoring Minds, a Tyler-based educational publisher, provided the funding for a state principal award.
The Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association named Kimmie Etheredge the Texas 2014 National Distinguished Principal, according to a news release. Ms. Etheredge is principal at Kay Granger Elementary School in Keller.
She will represent Texas at the National Distinguished Principals program in October in Washington, D.C.
She also will receive a $10,000 check that comes because of the Mentoring Minds donation. The company is a longtime partner of the Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association.
