Posted: Updated:

The National Association of Elementary School Principals has surprised an Upshur County principal with a high honor.

The group has named Union Elementary Principal Sara Stankus its 2013 National Distinguished Principal.

It awards the distinction to one principal in each state, as well as military and private schools.

Stankus credits her success to the great environment at Union Elementary School.

"You can't be a great principal without great teachers and great students, so we have that, and I just want to say thank you for this," Stankus said.

Stankus will be honored in a ceremony in Washington in the fall.
