For the second year in a row, Oregon’s Principal of the Year comes from the Bend La Pine School District. This year, La Pine's High School Principal Jay Mathisen won the honor. The announcement was made at an assembly on Thursday. Mathison: “The District had worked to set up an all school assembly. The students were so proud about being at La Pine High. They were pretty fired up and that's was really cool.” Mathisen has been the Principal at La Pine High for four years, and under his leadership, students test scores have risen dramatically. Last year, Jewell Elementary Principal Bruce Reynolds was the State's Elementary School Principal of the Year.
