White Rock Elementary principal Frances Fagan is one of two Surrey School District principals have received national recognition in the Learning Partnership's listing of Canada's outstanding principals.

Both she and Yrsa Jensen, principal of Hillcrest Elementary in Clayton, have both been honoured for exceptional leadership in the organization's 2012 awards, and will join the National Academy of Canada's Outstanding Principals in a ceremony Feb. 28 in Toronto.

The listing, which recognizes multiple principals for each province, comes as the result of an extensive selection process including nomination by peers, school staff and community members.

District communications manager Doug Strachan said such a national honour for Fagan and Jensen "reflects very well on the school district."

"We're proud of these principals, and proud that the school communities they serve can share in their accomplishments," he said.
