-A +A
A local school principal was recently honored for her work in education. The Folsom Lake Rotary Club invited Kathryn Allaman to be the guest speaker at their regular meeting in early June. Allaman is the principal at Folsom High School. She is a graduate of California State University, Sacramento, and holds bachelors and masters degrees in mathematics. Allaman was Teacher of the Year is 2002 and was named one of the Best of Sacramento teachers in 2002 as well. Addressing the club, she spoke about the success of the Folsom High School football team during the school year, and the national recognition it had received. She made special note of the great reception the team received by the Folsom community immediately after the season, indicating the parade was a major event for the team. Beyond athletics, however, the Folsom community continues to receive very favorable recognition for its support of the Folsom High School and the programs it offers to students, she said. The choir and band were recently recognized by Downbeat Magazine as “best of the best” in the area of High School Music programs. Allaman also made special note of the academic achievements the school realized over the year, including noteworthy accomplishments in the Advanced Placement program, where test results put Folsom High in the top 3 percent of all high schools in the nation. Average scores on the AP test were in excess of 800, out of a possible 900. ~ Staff report
