Michael Rottmann, principal of Rockford Lutheran Academy, was selected as a 2013 National Distinguished Principal. The 2013 celebration marks the 30th year the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) has presented this prestigious award.
Rottmann was nominated after receiving the Principal of the Year Award by the Evangelical Lutheran Education Association (ELEA) in March, and was selected for the National Distinguished Principal Award by the Private School Selection Committee of the NAESP. He is one of six other private school administrators to receive this prestigious award.
A graduate of Concordia University, Wisconsin, Rottmann previously held the position of principal at St. John’s Lutheran in Elgin, Ill. He has served as principal of Rockford Lutheran Academy since 2011.
In October, Rottmann will travel to Washington, D.C., for two days of activities planned to honor and bring well-deserved recognition to the elementary and middle-level educators chosen by the states, the District of Columbia, plus private and overseas schools.
