principal Steve Rabb has been selected by his peers to assume a statewide leadership role through the Association of Washington Middle Level Principals (AWMLP) beginning the next academic year into 2015, according to a press release issued this week by the Association of Washington School Principals.
Rabb will serve as vice president of AWMLP for the 2012-13 school year, as president-elect in 2013-14 and as president in 2014-15.
AWMLP is a 26-member board that meets quarterly and represents nearly 700 middle and junior high school principals and assistant principals from around the state. It is one of three grade-level boards that inform the work of its parent organization, the Association of Washington School Principals (AWSP).
Rabb was elected by his peers for his active involvement in the principalship with such accomplishments as Enumclaw Middle School being named a “School of Distinction” by OSPI in 2011.
“Steve brings many years of highly effective experience as a middle level principal,” said Don Rash, AWSP’s Director of Middle Level Programs. “He has been a principal leader in his district, now he is stepping forward to lead at the statewide level.”
Rabb has been principal at Enumclaw Middle for 14 years. He was the assistant principal at the school for six years prior to that. Before that he taught junior high for six years. He holds a bachelor’s degree in education, with a history major and language arts minor from Seattle Pacific University, and a master’s degree in educational administration from Western Washington University.
“I’ve invested my life into middle level education, developing leadership in myself and others,” said Rabb. “I am looking forward to giving back to the middle level community and helping our organization grow on a statewide basis.”
