Eva principal earns technology award

Using technology in the classroom has earned honors for one local educator.
Patrick Patterson, principal of Eva School, is this year’s recipient of the Chiquita Marbury Technology Innovation Award.
Sponsored by the Alabama Department of Education each year, one award is presented to four outstanding educators in the categories of teacher, school administrator, district technology coordinator and central office instructional leader.  Nominees are judged based on innovation and creativity, impact on teaching and learning, leadership, teamwork and scholarship.  The award panel rated Patterson’s attribute scores at the highest level of excellence in each criteria area as judged against other school administrators in the state.
Patterson was honored by State Superintendent Dr. Joe Morton, at the Alabama Education Technology Conference in Birmingham on June 9.
