Leaders from two of Lamar CISD’s Exemplary campuses were honored by their peers as Lamar CISD’s Principals of the Year.
Wertheimer Middle School principal Irma Nurre is the Secondary Principal of the Year and Campbell Elementary principal Michelle Koerth is the Elementary Principal of the Year.
Nurre is in her 15th year as an instructional leader for Lamar CISD. She opened Wertheimer in 2008 and was principal at Huggins Elementary from 2000-2008. She also led Smith Elementary from 1995-2000.
She began her educational career in LCISD as a student at Smith Elementary. She went to Crockett Middle School (now Seguin Elementary), Lamar Junior High (where George Junior is now located) and graduated from Lamar CHS.
She taught at Jackson, Myer and Williams and then served as an Assistant Principal at Smith and Meyer elementary schools.
Both Huggins and Wertheimer have been Exemplary campuses with Nurre as principal.
Koerth has led Campbell since 2006. Prior to coming to Campbell, she served as an assistant principal in both the Fort Bend and Cypress-Fairbanks school districts. Prior to becoming an administrator, Koerth taught in Fort Bend for eight years.
Campbell has been Exemplary since Koerth became principal.
