DENVER (KWWL) -

Denver Elementary School Principal Kim Tierney was awarded as the Iowa Elementary Principal of the Year Friday.

"Mrs. Tierney is one of the most passionate people that I have ever worked with, passionate for kids, passionate for education, passionate just to help people make their lives better," Brad Laures said.

The state-wide honor was very meaningful for Tierney, who dreamed of being an elementary school principal since she was in fourth grade.

"This is an incredible honor, but more so, it's an honor for our school district,” Tierney said. “You know individuals don't get recognized unless they are part of a great system and we definitely have a great system here that always does what's best for kids."

Tierney also coaches volleyball for Denver.
