Seneca Valley administrator wins award
Quincy Gildea, assistant principal at Seneca Valley Intermediate High School, has been named a 2023 recipient of the Emerging Woman in Education Award.
The award is in memory of Jean E. Winsand, University of Pittsburgh professor emeritus, and is hosted by the Tri-State Study Council.
The award honors a woman in the early stages of her leadership career who has made a significant impact and positive difference through her leadership activities and initiatives.
“This recognition speaks to the phenomenal leaders in my life who I have learned from and who believe in my abilities,” Gildea said. “We are profoundly fortunate here at Seneca Valley to have so many strong female leaders who inspire me and those around them each day.”
Tracy Vitale, Seneca Valley superintendent, said she is proud of Gildea.
“Quincy is a born leader who is firm but compassionate, levelheaded, and mature beyond her years,” Vitale said. “She has made the transition from leading in one of our elementaries to now leading as an assistant principal in one of our high schools.
“This transition is not typical for many educational leaders.”
Gildea will be honored at the Dr. Jean E. Winsand Workshop for Women in School Leadership awards ceremony in April.
