Nevada Joint Union High School Principal of the Year, Melissa Madigan

In addition to the wonderful programs, students and teachers available at Ghidotti Early College High School, the school is also home to this year’s Nevada Joint Union High School District Principal of the Year, Melissa Madigan.

Mrs. Madigan has been principal of Ghidotti High School for the past three years and was vice principal the preceding year. She first came to Ghidotti during the 2007-2008 school year, the school’s second year of operation.

“Mrs. Madigan has always gone above and beyond the call of her duties. As a student of Ghidotti, I can honestly say we are lucky to have a principal like Mrs. Madigan looking out for us. I am proud to know her,” senior Bethany Woolsey said.

The members of the school district come together annually to nominate both an administrator of the year and a principal of the year. The awards were presented at a ceremony three weeks ago.

The recognition came as a complete surprise to Mrs. Madigan.

“It’s always a great honor to be recognized by your peers” she said.

Ghidotti students are incredibly proud of their beloved principal.

“I am super happy for Mrs. Madigan! She works hard to keep this crazy school in working order and totally deserves the award!” said senior Aspen Drake.

Congratulations and thank you to Mrs. Madigan for all the many wonderful things you do for all of us every day.
