Press association names Rocky Heights AP Administrator of the Year
HIGHLANDS RANCH – When Rocky Heights Middle School Assistant Principal John Veit walked into the school yearbook room, he was greeted with handfuls of confetti and cheers from staff, students, and a special guest. Colorado High School Press Association president Jack Kennedy was there to present Veit with the organization’s “Administrator of the Year” award.
Kennedy shared some of the many praises from students who nominated Veit for the annual award. Rocky Heights staff members agree that the change in the program has been significant and welcome.
“There was a definite clear difference in the yearbook before and after Veit took over,” said Rocky Heights Principal Mike Loitz.
Veit was surprised by the fanfare and says he loves what he does.
“I am happy to have this role and support our students,” said Veit.
Veit will receive his official trophy at the CHSPA’s Journalism Day, which will be held on the CSU campus in Ft. Collins next month.
