Vail Daily letter: Kudos for Strakbein
Eagle, CO Colorado
We were so pleased to read that Eagle Valley High School Principal Mark Strakbein had been named Colorado principal of the year. When our daughter was headed into high school, we were concerned about which high school in our valley to send her to. We heard nothing but wonderful things about Eagle Valley High School even though we were more focused on the private options. At eighth-grade orientation night, I spoke with Strakbein about our concerns and how we were weighing our options. He was kind, informative and available then and continues to be now that our daughter is a sopho-more at Eagle Valley High School. I can’t begin to tell you how impressed we are with Strakbein, Vice Principal Mandeville and the teachers our daughter has learned from. It is a well- deserved award, and as highly protective and conservative parents, if you are weighing your high school options, you will be quite pleased with Eagle Valley High School.
