King Intermediate principal receives national award

King Intermediate School received a prestigious national award on Thursday.

The school’s principal, Sheena Alaiasa, is the first educator from Hawaii to be named the National Middle Level Principal of the Year by MetLife and the National Association of Secondary School Principals.

The presentation was made during a surprise student assembly Thursday morning.

“On behalf of the State of Hawaii, we are very proud of Sheena and congratulate her on this well-deserved recognition,” Gov. Neil Abercrombie said. “Sheena’s leadership and sense of community have enriched King Intermediate, its students and the entire school system.”

From a pool of nationwide winners, judges chose three finalists.

Alaiasa was picked over two other finalists from California and Mississippi.

She was also named Hawaii’s Middle School Principal of the Year in May.
