Sen. Moran Meets with Kansas Principals of the Year

WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) met with the Kansas Association of Secondary School Principals (KASSP) Principals of the Year: Ulysses’ Kepley Middle School Principal Juan Perez and Emporia High School (EHS) Principal Scott Sheldon. Each year, KASSP recognizes middle school and secondary school principals for outstanding and exemplary leadership.

“It was a pleasure to visit with Juan and Scott today who are helping Kansas students reach their full potentials in the classroom and beyond,” Sen. Moran said. “The future competitiveness of our state and nation is directly linked to the quality of our children’s education, and I’m pleased they are being commended for their contributions to Kansas students.”

In addition to his efforts as a Kansas State High School Activities Association Board Member from 1993-1999, Perez has worked for USD 214 for 25 years. He is also a member of the National Federation of High Schools Board.

Sheldon came to EHS in 1997 as an assistant principal after serving five years as principal at Skyline High School in Pratt. Before moving to Kansas, he was a high school and junior high school math, science and computer teacher in Arizona.
