Fairway Elementary Principal Dr. Lorinda Krey has been selected as the St. Louis Suburban Elementary Principal Association (SLSEPA) Distinguished Principal for 2021.
Krey was honored by SLSEPA Region President and Green Pines Elementary Principal Dr. Paul Godwin, Rockwood administrators and Fairway students and staff during a surprise announcement Dec. 4.
“I’m literally speechless and utterly shocked,” Krey said. “I’m humbled and can only think of the tremendous educational colleagues and leaders that I have been inspired by over the years.”
This is Krey’s sixth year as Fairway principal and 15th year in Rockwood. During her time at Fairway, Krey has worked with colleagues and student leaders to create a sense of unity.
“My proudest accomplishment – hands down – is the overwhelming feeling of ‘family’ that we have at Fairway, built on a foundation of love for each other,” she said. “To know that any person within the Fairway community would do anything for one of our students or each other is what fills my heart with immeasurable pride.”
