Congratulations to Marion High School Principal Keith Burke for being selected as the Indiana Association of School Principals High School Principal of the Year for District 6. District 6 includes Grant, Delaware, Henry, Wayne, Randolph, Jay and Blackford County.

IASP annually recognizes outstanding school leaders in each of 12 Indiana districts who have demonstrated excellence in leadership at the building level, district level, and community level, as well as the state level. These principals are acknowledged by their peers for exemplary contributions they have made to the profession. IASP will hold a conference this fall where all honorees are invited to attend, and a state principal of the year will be named.

“It’s always nice to be recognized for your accomplishments and also by your peers,” Burke told the Chronicle-Tribune. “(But) I think individual awards are a little overrated. I’m really excited and truly honored, but it’s as much an award for the school as for the principal.”

Keith Burke has worked over two decades in various Indiana public schools. He has received multiple awards including National Community School Principal of the year in 2006 while he was working at IPS Washington High School.

Since Keith Burke joined Marion High School in 2015, he has had outstanding success and commitment to Marion Community Schools. Marion Community Schools thanks Mr. Burke for his work and congratulates Mr. him on this GIANT achievement!
