Sequim Middle School Principal Brian Jones announced the award by the association, a subsidiary of the Association of Washington School Principals, at a staff meeting Thursday.
Karapostoles will be lauded at the Washington Activity Coordinators conference in Yakima from March 20-22.
Scott Harker, Sequim Middle assistant principal, and Tracy Barnes, ASB adviser, nominated Karapostoles.
Barnes, who read her nomination letter to the staff, said that throughout the past eight years, Karapostoles “has worked tirelessly to build a student-centered activities program developmentally appropriate for middle school students.”
She started such activities as cocoa morning, a movie night to benefit the local food bank, “Penny Wars” to help families traveling out of the area for cancer treatments and staff appreciation week, Barnes said.
Karapostoles also coordinates and hosts the Association of Washington School Principals Middle Level Regional conferences, Barnes added, and developed a local leadership camp that enabled more students to participate because of the lower cost.
As a representative of the state selection board, Chuck Lisk, Stevens Middle School principal in Port Angeles, presented a certificate to Karapostoles.
