The Wichita Branch NAACP presented Principal Hudson with the H.N. Sims Excellence in Education Award during the annual Freedom Fund Banquet on October 8. Hudson was recognized for his career in the Wichita Public Schools dedicated to improving students achievement and graduation rates at West, getting students college and career ready, his mentoring of assistant principals to help them develop into successful principals, and his work with community agencies like Grace Med to get a clinic by the school and United Way's Check and Connect to improve student attendance. Principal Hudson has been actively involved in the West Wichita Promise Neighborhood group, formed of non-profits including the Delano Neighborhood Association, which focused on the complex problem of student attendance as a means of addressing poverty in our area.
