Camas High School Principal Steve Marshall was recently named by the Washington Library Media Association as the high school level Principal of the Year.

He was nominated by CHS teacher-librarian Rosemary Knapp. He was honored at the WLMA annual conference at a banquet in October at the SeaTac DoubleTree Hotel.

The banquet featured author Sherman Alexie as the keynote speaker. Alexie, a Spokane, Wash., native, has written numerous short stories, novels and poetry, and won several awards. His most recent honors include the 2010 PEN/Faulkner Award for “Fiction for War Dances,” a collection of stories and poems; and the 2009 Odyssey Award for “The Absolutely True Diary” audio book.

The conference featured a poster designed by CHS graphic design students Annike Sumpter and Alex Garwood, which will be used throughout the state on various school library publications.
