Empire Brings Home Administrator and Teacher of the Year



Gremel&DonaldsonCongratulations to Matt Donaldson, Principal at Empire High School and Richard Gremel, Drama teacher at Empire High school for being recognized as Administrator of the Year and Teacher of the Year for the South Region of Arizona Thespians Association.

In Mr. Donaldson’s congratulatory letter from the Arizona Thespians’ Co-Director Mr Donaldson and the Vail School District were reminded of the importance of performing arts. “In a time when the Performing Arts are on the top of school’s budget cutting list, it is refreshing to find Administrators who can see how the Performing Arts are an important part of a well rounded school program.”

Congratulations on this well deserved honor!
