The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Dr. Martha Braly as a 2015-2016 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in education. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting more than 700,000 members and over 200 operating Local Chapters.
“I’m pleased to welcome Dr. Braly into this exceptional group of professional women,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “Her outstanding work as a Principal and her continued pursuit of professional excellence illustrates her commitment to her chosen field.”
Throughout the course of her rich, 30-year education career in the inner-city of Phoenix, AZ, Martha Braly has touched the lives of each of her students in all three of the thriving schools she has built. She is currently in her fourth year as Principal of AAEC Paradise Valley High School.
“Our youth is our future, and we need to do whatever we can to help them become successful and find their passion,” said Dr. Braly.
In addition to the efficient operation of the high school, Dr. Braly is responsible for effectively preparing her students for an outstanding college experience. Her proven skills in leadership and curriculum development have led her students on the path of academic excellence. Ten of her graduates received their Associate’s degree at the same time as their high school diploma.
Dr. Braly has successfully encouraged everyone at AAEC Paradise Valley High School to extend their efforts beyond the four walls of the classroom. Her students recently dedicated two years to training service dogs to present them to veterans who cannot afford the $30,000 cost. Her future goals include training new service dogs and helping her students earn as many college credits in high school as they can.
“There are never enough hours in the day to accomplish all that I want to do. The most rewarding thing that a person can do is give back, and I am able to do that through my career,” she said.
