Lincoln Principal receives National Louis alumni honor

District 64 is proud to announce that Dr. Tony Murray, principal of Lincoln Middle School, has received the prestigious alumni 2018 Reach award from National Louis University, from which he earned his doctorate in educational leadership in 2010.

“Tony Murray has dedicated his career to the idea that all children can achieve to high levels,” said Robert Muller, Ed.D., dean of National Louis University’s National College of Education.  

“That’s our mission, and it’s an honor to count such an accomplished middle-grades educator and leader among our alumni community,” Dr. Muller said.

Having written his dissertation on Social-Emotional Learning Through Middle School Advisory, the University noted that Dr. Murray “has championed social-emotional learning, educating the whole child and improving student achievement. He has put social-emotional learning, including such topics as how to handle conflicts with others, bullying, building relationships and being a good citizen, into practice as principal at Lincoln Middle School,” the University noted.

Dr. Murray joined District 64 as Lincoln principal for the 2012-13 school year.

“Dr. Murray and his staff are committed to ensuring all students at Lincoln Middle School receive a rigorous core instruction, rich encore and elective experiences, as well as consistent exposure and support in their social-emotional development,” District 64 Superintendent Laurie Heinz affirmed.

“We are very pleased to have a member of our administrative team receive this accolade for their efforts on behalf of our students,” she added. 

The award was presented on June 5. Read the University’s news release here.
