Templeton principal chosen for state honor

Templeton Middle School Principal Brad Hoffmann was selected as the 2023-24 Wisconsin Association of School Councils (WASC) Junior and Middle School (JAM) Administrator of the Year. The award recognizes Hoffmann for his exceptional and unwavering support of Templeton Middle School’s Student Council.

“Brad’s devotion to developing the leadership potential in our students is evident to everyone around him,” shares Templeton Associate Principal Cody Leland. “He takes the time to allow students to explore ideas, provides feedback and ultimately cultivates new initiatives alongside our student leaders. It is a passion of his and our students appreciate seeing a principal who is so actively engaged in wanting to better their Templeton experience.”

WASC Executive Director Bjorn Berg explained that Hoffmann was selected because his consistent mentorship has played a crucial role in honing Templeton students’ leadership skills and fostering a positive and collaborative environment. “Brad actively participates in and attends each Student Council event, providing invaluable support to their activities,” adds Berg.

Hoffmann calls this a tremendous honor and says “This award serves as a testament to the dedication and hard work of our entire school community, including students, educators, staff and parents. Together, we are committed to providing a supportive and empowering educational experience that prepares our students not only for academic success but also for a lifetime of leadership and service. Building meaningful connections with students lies at the heart of our educational approach, as we believe in nurturing not just academic growth, but also personal and leadership development.”

“By championing the student council, our principal provides a platform for students to voice their ideas, take on responsibilities and enact positive change in our school community,” explains Templeton Middle School Student Council Advisor Mary Caucutt. “Through this support, students learn invaluable skills in collaboration, decision-making and communication, laying the foundation for future leadership success.”

WASC is a statewide organization of public, private and parochial elementary, middle, junior and senior high school student councils and student leadership groups dedicated to the continuation and expansion of leadership development and student responsibilities in Wisconsin.
