Chocowinity Middle School's principal is the 2013 Wells Fargo North Carolina Principal of the Year.

Dale Cole received the honor during a luncheon ceremony held in Cary on Thursday.

Wells Fargo Carolinas Community Affairs Manager Juan Austin said, "Chocowinity Middle School's performance is the best indication of the strength of Dale Cole's leadership, and that performance has been exceptional."

State Superintendent June Atkinson said, "Dale understands what it takes to be an effective administrator."

Cole says collaboration is a key to a positive learning environment, "Over the last few years, I have learned that lasting improvements and changes come when consensus is reached by staff on a course where they build the plan and help to hold each other accountable. As principal, it is best to facilitate this process, not take charge of it."

Dr. Don Phipps, Superintendent of Beaufort County Schools said, "Dale is willing to take on any challenge and sees the possibilities rather than the obstacles."

Cole will receive an additional $3,000 for his school and $3,000 for personal use. He'll also get a scholarship for a 10-day educational tour of China thanks to EF Education First.

He graduated from East Carolina University.
