CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)-  Rick Rushworth, assistant principal at Lookout Valley High/Middle School, has been named the Tennessee Assistant Principal of the Year by the Tennessee Association of Secondary School Principals (TASSP).  Now designated a state winner by TASSP, Rushworth is eligible in consideration to be the 2011 NASSP/Virco National Assistant Principal of the Year.

The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) and Virco Inc. come together annually to honor a winner from each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) schools.  From this pool of outstanding administrators, three national finalists will be named in February. From those finalists one national winner will be chosen at NASSP's national conference on February 26, 2011, in San Francisco, California.  The National finalists each receive a grant of $1,500 and the National winner receives a grant of $5,000.

As an assistant principal, Rushworth has proven success in involving the local community in the life of the school, astute awareness of current and emerging issues, and passion in improving the school's learning environment.  All state winners, including Rushworth, will be honored at a three-day event in Washington, DC, March 30 – April 1, 2011.  Event highlights feature a national speaker, visits to Capitol Hill to meet with legislators, and networking with some of the best assistant principals across the nation.  The event culminates with a black-tie gala to recognize the achievements of each of the state honorees, the national finalists, and the national winner.

 "As school districts across the country struggle with filling school administrator positions, both principals and assistant principals, it becomes imperative that we highlight and honor the high achievers in the profession," said Gerald N. Tirozzi, NASSP Executive Director. "To shine a light on the work of a quality educator such as Rick Rushworth is an honor."

    North Hamilton County Elementary School students were practicing for their Christmas program “Reindeer Games” when they had a great idea. Instead of pretending to donate gifts to needy children they decided to REALLY make a donation. So they organized a toy drive, chose a worthy cause and stopped in the middle of their program to donate toys to the Northside Neighborhood House.
