SNELLVILLE -- The Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development announced recently that it has selected 25 educators from around the world for the 2013 Emerging Leaders Class. Among them: Shiloh High School's principal.

Eric Parker was selected for the honor, which recognizes and prepares young, promising educators to influence education programs, policy and practice on both the local and national levels.

According to its website, ASCD is the "global leader in providing programs, products and services that empower educators to support the success of each learner."

All emerging leaders are enrolled in the program for two years and may be paired with an ASCD mentor -- a member of the ASCD board of directors, an ASCD affiliate leader or another high-level contributor -- who can provide support and guidance in their professional development.

"Each year, we sort through a multitude of applicants to pick the most promising leaders in education to represent ASCD," said Executive Director and CEO Gene Carter. "This year's class has raised the standard of excellence yet again. We look forward to working with them to build and develop the skills needed to continually improve our profession."
