Genie Wickham of Titan Hill Intermediate School in the Lewis Central district is the recipient of the 2013 Iowa Assistant Elementary Principal of the Year award from the School Administrators of Iowa.

Wickham expressed, “I am so fortunate to work with so many people who give 110 percent for the sake of children. The staff at Titan Hill have modeled what it means to do whatever it takes in an effort to help children be successful!"

“Genie Wickham is a passionate advocate for ‘kids first’ and meeting the diverse needs of all students. Her focus is on good instruction. She works with teachers and families to problem solve and remove barriers that hinder student success,” said Dan Smith, SAI executive director.

Her education includes a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Buena Vista University, a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from Doane College, and her administrative endorsement from the Iowa Principal Leadership Academy.
