Bossier High Principal Again Honored as One of Best in Louisiana
While it was a huge honor just to be recognized as a Louisiana State semi-finalist, receiving the news from the Louisiana Department of Education, that he has now become a finalist in the Louisiana Principal of the Year competition, has made this an incredible week for Bossier High School Principal, David Thrash.
Thrash has been in education for 38 years and spent the last 14 of those as principal of Bossier High School. Considered the “dean” of Bossier Parish high school principals, Thrash won the 2011 Louisiana State Principal of the Year title and was a previous Bossier Parish High School Principal of the Year in 2010 and 2018. Bossier High has seen big gains under the leadership of Thrash, most notably the school’s current letter grade improving to a ‘B.’
Both Thrash and Haughton's Steve Brown, who is a Teacher of the Year semi-finalist, will be honored at the 15th Annual Excellent Educators Awards Gala in July at which time the state winners will be announced.
