Stone Mill Elementary School principal

Dr. Kimberly Williams (Cascio) has been honored with the Nancy C. Walker Award for Outstanding Support to a Library Media Program for the 2020 – 2021 school year. The award is given annually by the Montgomery County Educational Media Specialists Association (MCEMSA) to highlight the role by administrative leaders in supporting library media centers.

Anita Blank, the media specialist at Stone Mill, nominated Dr. Williams because she encourages her “to advocate for [her] program … as one of the curriculum leaders for reading and writing.”
