Hazen High School assistant principal Ed Crow has been named Washington state’s Assistant Principal of the Year by the Association of Washington School Principals.

Crow was selected for the recognition based on his exceptional leadership and his ability to create a school climate where students thrive; cultivate a focused team of teachers; build relationships with students, parents and staff; and engage the community in the learning process.

To his colleagues throughout the region, Crow is known as a teacher, coach and reliable friend.

“Ed is truly deserving of this recognition,” said Renton Schools Superintendent Dr. Merri Rieger. “We are so proud to count Ed as part of our leadership team. He truly defines leadership, commitment and dedication.”

Crow has been assistant principal at Hazen since 2009. Before that, he served as assistant principal at Renton High.

Crow grew up in Seattle attending Franklin High School. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communications with an emphasis in Broadcast Journalism and a Bachelor of Arts in English with a Writing Emphasis from the University of Washington. He also holds a Masters in Teaching from Seattle University. His administrative credentials were earned in the UW‘s Danforth Educational Leadership Program.

“This award is a great recognition for the work we’re doing at Hazen,” Ed says. “I am lucky that every day I get to work with an amazing group of educators focused on preparing every child for the rigors of life after high school. This award allows Hazen a moment in the spotlight and gives the whole Highlander Community a chance to be recognized.”

“I look at students and realize that their parents have entrusted us with the task of getting their children ready for college, career and life. It is both a humbling and energizing experience,” he said.
