Each year, AWSP’s Advocacy Advisory Council has the opportunity to select a state-level public servant who demonstrates support of principals and the principalship in the education of each and every student. The Association of Washington School Principals is thrilled to announce that our 2022 Torch of Leadership Award has been presented to Representative Alicia Rule (D–Blaine).
Representative Rule was elected to the Legislature in 2020 with a clear mission to represent children and young adults. She is Vice Chair of the Children, Youth, and Families Committee and serves on the Community and Economic Development and Capital Budget Committees. In her first two years as a state legislator, she sponsored significant pieces of legislation that support students in the K-12 system.
