The Vernon Parish Principals of the Year were revealed at the December School Board agenda-setting meeting. Candidates for the honor are nominated by system employees. Winners are determined by majority vote. 

The winners advance to regional competition and those winners are then judged at the state level. State winners then move to the national judging.

Vernon honorees this year are Leigh Lansdale, Pickering Elementary; Angel Williams, Vernon Middle School; and Johnny Bosley, Rosepine High.
