Stephanie Conklin (KS '16) | Principal, Brougham Elementary School | Olathe, KS
Date of Award: October 7, 2016
It's tough to surprise the principal, but Stephanie Conklin was absolutely shocked when Lowell Milken called her name on the day of her surprise notification at Brougham Elementary. Conklin strives to visit every classroom every day, knows each student by name, and has created an environment where students want to be at school to learn, which shows in the school's well-above-average attendance. The school consistently ranks in the top five of Olathe's 35 elementary schools. "It's a privilege to serve as the principal of Brougham Elementary," Conklin told the students, staff and guests assembled in the gym. And then, a Kansas pun: "There really is no place like Brougham."
