WEST FARGO, N.D. -Holly Ripley, an assistant principal at West Fargo High School, was named the 2016 National Assistant Principal of the Year.

The National Association of Secondary School Principals recognized Ripley on Friday during its 100th anniversary luncheon at the annual conference in Orlando, Fla., after she was named the North Dakota Assistant Principal of the Year in December.

Ripley was as an educator in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and North Carolina before moving to West Fargo in 2007 as director of knowledge management.

In 2010, Ripley became assistant principal at West Fargo High School, a position that gives her "the best of two worlds" as an educator and a leader.

Working closely with students and staff in the school gave Ripley a good view of what the student needs are. She said she quickly realized that the high school was losing some students before graduation, and some who were graduating were still not proficient in basic skills such as writing, which was unacceptable.

Ripley and fellow teachers and staff at the high school have worked on a multitiered approach of support for students that helps students succeed.
