Dr. Jen Dinan, Principal of Finneytown Local School District Secondary Campus, has been awarded Hamilton County Council’s PTA Outstanding Educator for 2019. In March, 2019, she was recognized as the PTA Educator of the Year representing Finneytown Local School District, and she was chosen among the five other recipients as the council’s nominee for the region’s PTA award. She will be recognized at the HCC PTA Executive Luncheon on September 25, 2019.
In her 20th year at Finneytown Local Schools, Dr. Dinan’s commitment and dedication to the education and equity for students and staff of the Secondary Campus is evident through the relationships she has developed with students, staff, and families and the programs she and her team have introduced in the middle and high school.
Superintendent Terri Noe commented that, “Dr. Dinan has been a huge asset to the district and to the Secondary Campus. She has served the district well over the years but really shines as the Principal of our biggest school. To her, relationships are everything. This is evident in the programs she and her staff have implemented. Her leadership style is not top down. Many of the programs, like the House system, are grassroots efforts driven by teachers. She supports, encourages, and helps her staff embrace their leadership capabilities.”
