Lambert named District 8 High School Principal of the Year

MADISON – In recognition for her outstanding successes at Bob Jones High School, Sylvia Lambert has received the honor of “District 8 High School Principal of the Year.”

The Alabama Association for Secondary School Principals selected Lambert for this accolade.

All eight districts of the Alabama State Board of Education nominated a principal within their district for the award.

Lambert has worked in the field of education for 16 years. From 1984-1990, Lambert taught and coached for Montgomery and Memphis schools. During a hiatus from teaching, she owned and managed an employment service in Huntsville.

Previously, she taught at Liberty Middle School and James Clemens High School and served as Assistant Principal of Curriculum and Instruction at Bob Jones. Lambert has been Bob Jones Principal for six years.

Lambert earned a bachelor’s degree at the University of Mississippi, master’s degree at Auburn University at Montgomery and education specialist credentials at Alabama A&M University.

She and husband Mark are parents of Daniel and Shelby, who graduated from the University of Alabama in Huntsville and Samford University, respectively.

Sylvia Lambert seeks to champion her students and inspire them to push their limits. Her efforts have proven successful, according to the principals’ association. Lambert inspires teachers and students to share the same high moral code. She has demonstrated superior leadership skills and has earned the respect of the community, faculty, students and administration.

“It is an honor for our school and is a reflection of the positive culture we strive to provide,” Lambert said. “We support student growth in many areas of life including academics, personal goals, mental health and career preparation.”

Lambert, Bob Jones teachers and staff want students to grow and develop as the best young people they can be. “The high expectations of our faculty, staff, students, parents and community are emulated in the daily lives of our Patriots,” she said.

The principals’ association now will consider Lambert in the running for Alabama State Principal of the Year. The association will contact the top three finalists for a scheduled interview with the selection committee on Nov. 9 at the fall conference of the associations for high school and middle school principals.

State officials will recognize Lambert and other district winners at the conference’s Awards General Session on Nov. 10.
