Hallsville principal wins $10,000, statewide award

Posted: Updated:

HALLSVILLE/HARRISON COUNTY (KYTX) - North Elementary School Principal Cristi Parsons gets a big surprise this morning -- and a hefty check.

Parsons has been named the Texas National Distinguished Principal for 2013.

Hallsville I.S.D. leaders and representatives from the Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association made the announcement by surprising Parsons at a school assembly.

"I do love every single one of you, and you know what, not only does North Elementary, what do we do? ROCK! Well, now, Ms. Parsons rocks," Parsons told her students this morning.

Parsons was presented a check for $10,000 -- and she will visit Washington, D.C. this summer to tour the U.S. Capitol and possibly the White House.
