Meet our First Winner!

Shyulanda Randle- Filer

Shyulanda has made history as the first Black principal at Vincent Middle School in Beaumont, TX.

As the first black principal, Mrs. Filer leads in a manner that sets her apart from other principals and she spends a lot of time and effort making sure that her students feel loved and respected.

Additionally, Mrs. Filer encourages her teaching staff to emphasize the history, struggle, victories, and achievements of People of Color through their teachings.

Mrs. Filer leads by example, through service and because of this, each staff member and student understands the importance of sacrifice, dedication, compassion, setting and pursuing goals and how giving up should never be an option.

Congrats to our Week 2 Winner!
