Mr. Scott Keith, Damascus Middle School Principal, Recognized with National Award

In the field of education, administrators, teachers, and students may work diligently over a long period of time before they begin to see measurable results.  Mr. Scott Keith, principal at Damascus Middle School, was recently honored for the hard work he, his assistant principal, faculty, staff, and students did while he was principal at Coeburn Middle School is Wise County, Virginia.  The school was recently recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School based on both the “overall academic excellence and the progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups” (U.S. Department of Education).  This is a great accomplishment for Mr. Keith, his former assistant principal Mrs. Angela Clendenon (who is now principal), the faculty, staff, and students at Coeburn Middle School!  Damascus Middle School is pleased to have Mr. Keith and his commitment to academic excellence!
