Congrats Principal Matthews!

At its April 17, 2018 meeting, the Barrington 220 Board of Education recognized Grove Principal Katie Matthews, for being selected as a member of the Northern Illinois Marguerite F. Key Fellows inaugural class of 2018. The program was created in 2017 to honor the commitments of Ms. Key, a lifelong advocate of K-12 education in Illinois. The purpose is to identify and reward school administrators who have implemented new and inventive strategies that benefit the future of our students and communities. Principal Matthews is one of only seven candidates selected from a large pool across Illinois. She received a $1,000 reward at an induction ceremony at Northern Illinois University on June 21, 2018.
