One Kosciusko County principal has been selected for the sixth cohort of the Indiana Principal Leadership Institute at Indiana State University’s Bayh College of Education.

Chosen among 49 principals, the sixth cohort includes Kim Nguyen of Wawasee High School.

The Indiana Principal Leadership Institute is a two-year experience designed to address the professional needs of Indiana public school principals with an emphasis on student success. The institute will increase a principal’s capacity to address the current needs of her/his school, such as effective instruction, student performance, community involvement and shaping a strong school culture, according to a news release from the Institute.

Cohort No. 6 is being guided by 11 trained mentors. These mentors are experienced Indiana school leaders, and they will play a key role in guiding smaller regional focus-cohorts in their areas of the state.

In addition to the targeted work with each cohort, IPLI is committed to serving as a resource for all Indiana principals, their schools and their school communities. This includes sharing research, providing access to leadership assessments and offering tools to develop action research plans. IPLI’s website,, serves as the clearinghouse for this information.
