2006 Principal's Leadership Award


Aaron Bihl, a Clay High School Senior, has been named a recipient of a Principal’s Leadership Award Scholarship, co-sponsored by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) and Herff Jones, Inc. 

One hundred and fifty national PLA winners will be chosen from among more than 5,400 applications. Each national winner will receive a $1,000 college scholarship.
Participating high school principals from across the country could nominate one senior high student to compete in this year’s program. Winners were selected on the basis of their leadership skills, participation in service organizations and clubs, achievements in the arts and sciences, employment experience, and academic record.  He was selected by Todd Warnock, CHS principal.
“Every year I am incredibly impressed by the caliber of young people nominated for PLA scholarships. Academic excellence paired with a talent for leadership and service is truly an impressive combination,” said Rocco Morano, director of student activities, NASSP. “We are proud to recognize the commitment these young people have shown to their school and community.”
In recognizing leadership in co-curricular activities as well as academic performance, the PLA scholarship recognizes the importance of a well-rounded education. Co-curricular activities are an essential part of the school curriculum.
While at Clay, Bihl has been a student-athlete and a student leader.  During his four years, he has played basketball and was a member of the soccer team.  He was named to the District team and was an All-Ohio Academic Team member.  He is also CHS Student Council president and a member of the CHS National Honor Society.  Aaron is the son of Dave and Debbie Bihl of Eden Park.   Aaron's sister, Heather, and brother, Chris, were also very active at Clay--participating in sports and in student activities. Just like Aaron, both were also National Honor Society members.   Heather is a teacher in North Carolina while Chris is a student at Eastern Kentucky University.
NASSP, the preeminent school leadership organization, serves as the national voice for middle level and high school principals, assistant principals, and aspiring school leaders. NASSP promotes intellectual growth, academic achievement, character development, leadership development, and physical well being of youth through its programs and student leadership services. NASSP administers the National Honor Society, the National Junior Honor Society, and the National Association of Student Councils.
