The Secondary School Principals Association of Nevada (SSPAN) has named Tasha Fuson, principal at Spanish Springs High School, as Nevada's High School Principal of the Year. In announcing the honor, SSPAN called Fuson's work over the past four years at Spanish Springs High School "outstanding."
"I am so honored to have won this award," Fuson said. "I believe it is truly a testament to the hard work and dedication of my faculty and staff and the support of our wonderful parents and community. We will not rest until 100 percent of our students graduate college and career ready!"
Fuson has worked in education since 1995 in a variety of positions, beginning as a special education teacher, a dean of students, and an assistant principal at schools in Southern Nevada. She came to Reno in 2007 to become an assistant principal at Reno High School before assuming her current role as principal at Spanish Springs High School.
"Tasha Fuson is a tremendous leader and mentor for her students and staff," said Superintendent Pedro Martinez. "Her dedication to her school is truly outstanding, and we are so proud that she has received this recognition. It is richly deserved."
The names of state finalists will now be submitted for national honors in the MetLife/NASSP National Principal of the Year award competition. The name of the National Principal of the Year will be announced in September.
