Principal nabs regional honor
Milstead, who took over as principal at Ruston High three years ago, is humble about winning and said he prefers not to talk about it.
“It’s an honor to me, but no honor is achieved in a vacuum,” Milstead said.
He said he much prefers to accept the Region 8 award on behalf of the entire school, not just himself.
Lincoln Parish Schools Superintendent Danny Bell nominated Milstead for the award because of his work with the school’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Math program and for helping to increase the number of advanced placement classes at the school.
