Wilmington University Alumna Selected as Delaware’s Assistant Principal of the Year

Wilmington University alumna Dr. Courtney Voshell was recently selected Delaware’s Assistant Principal of the Year. As a result, she is now one of three finalists for the National Assistant Principal of the Year award.   

Dr. Voshell, Dover High School's assistant principal, began her teaching career in 2003 at her high school alma mater, Dover High. She left the classroom in 2009 to move into the administrative role of assistant principal. 

She holds a master's degree in School Leadership (2009) and a doctorate in Educational Leadership (2013), each from Wilmington University. Voshell was nominated for the award by Capital School District supervisor, Dr. Darren Guido, and the current principal of Dover High School, Dr. Evelyn Edney. 

“It is an extreme honor to represent Delaware and, most importantly, the Capital School District, as this has been my home since I was in high school,” Voshell said. She is currently preparing for her next round of interviews for the national title.

The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) will review all nominees and select three finalists to interview in February at the National Principals Convention. All state nominees will attend the event in Washington D.C. in April, where the 2014 national winner will be announced.
