John Deming, principal of Walla Walla Valley Academy (WWVA) for the past 14 years, received the Excellence in Leadership Award at the Alumni Awards Celebration, Feb. 24, in Scottsdale, Arizona. He was recognized for his dedication and leadership in Christian education. The students, parents and teachers who were interviewed said Deming is well-known for his genuine caring and strong leadership.
One senior student shared his appreciation of Deming’s dedication to the students and his spiritual involvement. "Mr. Deming comes to work early and prays for each student before the day begins."
