Hillsboro High School principal wins prestigious award

The University of Tennessee singled out Principal Terry Shrader of Hillsboro High School as the 2013-14 winner of the prestigious William J. and Lucille H. Field Award in Support of Excellence in Tennessee Secondary School Leadership.

He learned about the award at the February Principals’ Meeting where he received a standing ovation from his peers.

“I tell my friends from my old districts that I have had the chance to work in great places, but there is none as good as MNPS,” said Shrader.

At the formal award presentation in April, Shrader will share his expertise on effective school leadership and lessons learned to UT graduate students who are or are aspiring to be school leaders.

A graduate of the University of Tennessee, William Field served as a Tennessee school administrator for 29 years including 21 years at Columbia High School where Lucille Field joined her husband as the school’s secretary. Together, they promoted excellence in education. In their honor, the Field Award was established in 2001.
