EDINBURG – For three consecutive years, the Texas Association of Secondary School Principals (TASSP) has named a principal from the Edinburg Consolidated Independent School District as the Region One Outstanding Principal of the Year.

TASSP recently announced that it selected Edinburg High School Principal Yesenia T. Molina to represent the region’s 38 school districts and 10 charter school systems for this prestigious award.

“It is an honor to receive the distinction of TASSP Principal of the Year and to represent Edinburg CISD and Edinburg High School,” Molina said. “The only way to do great work is to love it, and I’m blessed to come to school every day to do what I love.”

Molina has headed Edinburg High School for 7 years. She attended The University of Texas Pan-American and earned a Bachelor of Science in English degree and a Masters of Education in Guidance and Counseling and in Educational Leadership. She sees herself as a risk-taker, a visionary, and a leader for teachers and students.

“I work with some amazing people and with the best students, making the job extraordinarily rewarding,” Molina said. “My job is truly fulfilled by my staffs’ passion for teaching and by the energy of my Bobcats.”

Molina is credited with numerous achievements, including serving as a delegate to the College Board representing the Southwestern Region, receiving the College Board Advanced Placement Award in 2009, and earning the Volunteer Award by the Hidalgo County Advocacy Center for the Estrellita’s House Annual Holiday Project.

Last year, Edinburg North High School Principal Mark Micallef was named the Region One Outstanding Principal of the Year. In 2018, Roberta Davila, an assistant principal from Longoria Middle School, was named the Region One Outstanding Assistant Principal of the Year.

According to TASSP, the organization recognizes outstanding principals and assistant principals from the state’s 20 region Education Service Centers. School administrators are nominated and chosen by their peers within their regions. Nominations are based upon exemplary performance and outstanding leadership.

As a Region One winner, Molina is eligible to compete for the state title of Texas Principal of the Year. Each of the region winners will be recognized during the Josten’s Night of the Stars Awards Dinner held in conjunction with the TASSP Summer in June in Austin. Each will be presented with an award and recognized in a commemorative book entitled Texas Principals, Texas Heroes.
