The Johnston County school system has named its Principal of the Year for 2014-215. He is Jamie Stoke of Wilson’s Mills Elementary School.

The announcement came at the Sept. 23 meeting of the Johnston County Principals/Assistant Principals Association. Stoke received $500 for himself and $500 for his school from the Johnston County Education Foundation.

Stoke said he was happy and proud for his school. “I am blessed to work with talented and dedicated staff members,” he said.

Stoke advances to the regional competition.

“Mr. Stoke exhibits outstanding leadership, and his dedication shows in all that he does for his school, district and community,” said Johnston Superintendent Dr. Ed Croom. “We wish him well as he moves forward in this competition, and the district is confident that he is an excellent role model for principals across the state. Our school system is fortunate to have the caliber of leadership that we have in our principals.”
