A principal and a teacher from the Diocese of Arlington are the recipients of the highest annual leadership awards from Marymount University in Arlington. 

Adrianne Jewett, principal of Our Lady of Good Counsel School in Vienna, received Marymount’s Student of the Year award, presented to a student in the Master of Education in Administration and Supervision program, also known as the Catholic School Leadership Program (CSLP). 

Emily Stocker, a teacher and technology coordinator at St. Thomas More Cathedral School in Arlington, received the CSLP Intern of the Year award. Both schools serve prekindergarten through eighth grade.Both awards were presented May 11 at the annual Teacher Education Banquet, held online. 

Both recipients “are committed to our faith and dedicated to promoting the Catholic identity of their schools," said Sister Patricia Helene Earl, CLSP director and a member of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

“The CSLP requires hard work and dedication, but the lessons learned throughout make me a better principal,” Jewett said. “I look forward to continuing to serve my community at Our Lady of Good Counsel even better in the future.”

 “The program gave me the background necessary to continue to develop and serve St. Thomas More Cathedral School as an educator and will hopefully allow me to become a Catholic school leader within our diocese,” said Stocker.

Awardees are selected based on the following minimum criteria:

— Maintain a high GPA.

— Receive high marks in adhering to professional educational standards, most notably Professional Standards for Educational Leaders.

— Demonstrate an ongoing commitment to and love for the Catholic faith and Catholic education.

— Demonstrate a depth of understanding of and ability to make significant contributions to Catholic education, modeling Christ in the spirit of servant leadership.

Marymount University’s Master of Education in Administration and Supervision is an online program designed to prepare students worldwide for school administration in Catholic schools, as well as public or private schools. Coming to campus for two weeks in the summer, participants complete the course of study in a cohort, supporting each other and sharing experiences and insights. This year, the program’s summer session will be online.
