Newsom awards principals of the year

Four local principals were honored Friday as the first recipients of Mayor Gavin Newsom’s Principal of the Year awards.

Sandra Osborne, of the Presidio Child Development Center; Bonnie Coffey-Smith, of McKinley Elementary School; Carmelo Sgarlato, of James Lick Middle School; and Kevin Truitt, of Mission High School took home awards after more than 40 people were nominated.

Newsom was joined by Supervisors Bevan Dufty and Tom Ammiano as well as San Francisco Unified School District Deputy Superintendent Tony Smith. Smith said that despite recent successes in the district there is still room to improve. “We have to get better at supporting our principals,” he said.
