KUSA - The principal who led Columbine High School through its worst day and then kept his promise to stay was honored in Washington DC last week.
Frank DeAngelis was one of three finalists for Principal of the Year. While DeAngelis did not win, he was still recognized for his work here in the community and received a $1,500 grant.
He's known across the country for his leadership during the days and months following the school shooting in 1999.
DeAngelis recently announced plans to retire at the end of the current school year.
