Tomes Tours Local Middle School


TOMES TOURS LOCAL MIDDLE SCHOOL: State Sen. Jim Tomes (R-Wadesville, center) and wife Margie Tomes (right) join Thompkins Middle School Principal Dr. Bryan Perry (left), for a tour of the Evansville school Jan. 23. Perry recently attended the Indiana Principal Leadership Institute (IPLI), which was created by the Indiana General Assembly in 2013. IPLI is committed to providing principals with the skills and tools needed to increase their personal leadership capacity, as well as increase the learning capacity within their schools. “Dr. Perry has done a great job implementing what he's learned from IPLI into this middle school,” Tomes said. “Now in its second year, the program has proven to be an effective way for principals to sharpen the skills they need to become more capable leaders.”
