Chris Troester, principal of Hazel Grove Elementary, was recently selected to receive the prestigious 2014 Missouri Association of School Librarians Service Award for School Administrators.

He was nominated for the award in recognition of his support of the library media program and reading initiatives at Hazel Grove Elementary. Only one school administrator from throughout Missouri is selected for this award each year.

Troester will be presented with the award April 14 at the MASL Spring Conference Administrators’ Luncheon in St. Louis. He will have the opportunity to inspire nearly 1,000 library media specialists from across the state with encouraging words about reading and the positive effect that libraries have on students.

Troester has been principal at Hazel Grove Elementary School since 1998.
