Friday, June 06, 2014

Congratulations to Steve Frazier, principal of Silver Trail Middle School, on being named Florida PTA’s Outstanding Principal of the Year for 2014.  He will receive the award at the annual Florida PTA Leadership/Convention, July 11-13, 2014, in Innisbrook, Florida.
Frazier, who was nominated by the Broward County Council of PTAs/PTSAs, was selected through a rigorous nomination process from among hundreds of principals across the state. This prestigious honor recognizes the exemplary organizational, management, analytical, communication and interpersonal skills demonstrated by a school leader.
Frazier is active in Silver Trail Middle PTSA activities and serves on its board. He has excelled in getting the PTA’s message out to parents and the school community, consistently shares new ideas and contributes to the implementation of initiatives to support students and their parents.
Frazier strives for excellence and seeks innovative ways to enhance the experiences of his parents, students and teachers at Silver Trail Middle. An advocate for big ideas, his successes this year include the implementation of STRIDE Pride, a school-wide effort and plan aimed at promoting and recognizing positive student behaviors.
Also, recognizing the impact and effects of hunger on students and families in his school community, Frazier created the Feel Good Project as a way to teach and involve students in collecting food items that are shared with families in need during the summer months. He’s working on expanding the project and establishing a food pantry at the school to serve families year round.
“We are very proud and excited that Mr. Frazier has been selected for this honor,” said Broward County Council of PTAs/PTSAs President Maxine Lewers.  “At a time when many schools are struggling for PTA/PTSA participation, through his involvement and leadership, Mr. Frazier has significantly increased his school’s membership of teachers, staff and parents, and is well on his way of reaching his goal of 100% participation.”
