Biographical Information

In his fourteen years as principal of Parsons High School in Parsons, George Tignor has introduced a number of measures that have turned a school with significant problems into "a very progressive school that is willing to develop new programs to serve student needs." The V.I.P. (Very Important Pupils) program developed under Mr. Tignor's leadership has been instrumental in improving the attitude and performance of at-risk students. The program, which has served as a model for several similar programs in area schools, pairs tenth graders as mentors with elementary school children.

The National Association of Secondary School Principals named Mr. Tignor 1995 Principal of the Year.
