At Orange, there are approximately 1200 students in grades nine through 12 and about 80 certified and classified staff.

None of these achievements would have been possible without Mr. Hankins fostering an environment of trust and mutual respect with his faculty, students and their families, and others; collaborating with school community stakeholders from the educational, business/banking, faith based, and governmental sectors; and implementing creative academic and student centered initiatives to address the academic, career, and personal/social development needs of his students. Mr. Hankins truly understood the shared leadership concept, the benefits of having input and dialogue from all stakeholders, and the importance of having a vision for Orange High School that would create an inviting school climate and culture for teaching and learning. An exceptional instructional and student centered leader, I highly recommend Armond Hankins for any
I am pleased to write a letter of recommendation to support Armond Hankins' application to serve as an instructional leader in your school district. Mr. Hankins served as an assistant principal at Orange High School for two years. In 2010, he was selected as the principal. He is a dynamic leader and he utilizes his leadership skills to increase student achievement, empower others, offer opportunities to struggling students, promote teacher and student buy-in, and provide a safe learning environment. I have worked with Mr. Hankins since his first year in Orange County Schools. He thinks outside the box and he attempts to support all students through his creative leadership. One program that Mr. Hankins started at Orange High School was the Pay It Forward program. This
A second program that Mr. Hankins started at Orange High School was the Perfect Attendance Award.
During our monthly principal meetings, Mr. Hankins has shared leadership strategies, curriculum and instruction ideas, and ways to increase student achievement at Orange High School and across the school district. In 2012, Orange High School was named a School of Distinction with High Growth. Mr. Hankins has also worked with middle school feeder schools to create a smooth transition from middle school to high school for students and families. Based on my experience working with and observing Mr. Hankins as a school leader, I am confident that he would immediately contribute to your school district. It is without reservation that I recommend Armond Hankins as an instructional leader within your school district.
I have known Mr. Hankins since 2008, when he was hired as an assistant principal at Orange High School in Hillsborough, North Carolina. At the time, I was serving as Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources and Finance for the Orange County Schools in Hillsborough. Later, in 2010, I was responsible for putting the committee together that selected Mr. Hankins principal at Orange High School. I personally worked with over 20 parents, staff, and students in selecting Mr. Hankins as the finalist for this most prestigious principalship. Mr. Hankins did a wonderful job as principal of Orange High School. I know the staff, parents, and students were sad to see him go. Mr. Hankins is an intelligent, caring person. He never tired in trying to help all students succeed. Mr. Hankins got along well with everyone; parents, teachers, and students. The student achievement at Orange High School rose significantly under his leadership. Mr Hankins is a leader of great integrity. I wish we had more school leaders like Mr. Hankins. I retired from Orange County Schools in July 2010. Currently, I teach aspiring school ' administrators at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina. I hope I will have students that become outstanding school administrators like Mr. Hankins.
the honor of working with Mr. Hankins for the past four years, the first two as our assistant principal and the last two years as our principal. In 17 years as a school counselor, I have never worked for a more professional, approachable, hard working, organized and compassionate principal. As our assistant principal, Mr. Hankins worked closely with the guidance department in many areas including
As an assistant principal and principal, Mr. Hankins leads by example.
As a parent of a teenage; I was able to see first hand what a gift Mr. Hankins had with our youth. My oldest son was, at times, in minor trouble for small infractions that deserved a consequence. Not always a fan of authority, my son would always point out that Mr. Hankins is so "cool" because he deals with the behavior without making the kid feel like a failure. What an awesome observance from a 17 year old male student. On another note, seeing him at almost every event our school holds, whether it is my youngest son's wrestling team matches, football games, a vocal performance, or agricultural night speaks volumes about his commitment to the school he serves. On numerous occasions, I have watched Mr. Hankins interact with students, some extremely angry and defensive. His calm demeanor always helped them to re-group and realize the impact of their behavior. Our students hold Mr. Hankins in the highest regard due to his ability to discipline without degrading. I would love nothing more than to retire with Mr. Hankins as my principal. However, I certainly respect his desire to move forward in the best interest of his family. He has my highest recommendation for any position of leadership. My work with him as a mother of two sons and as a counselor has been enjoyable and memorable. He has been a great principal and an even better person to learn from about how to live life loving and serving others with ease. As a faculty, we often observe his quiet, humble smile and state that one day we will be just like him! He will be greatly missed at Orange High school but his leadership and impact on our school and our
Armond Hankins, demoted from ..., 17 June 2012 [cached]
Armond Hankins, demoted from his position as principal of Orange High School, has detailed his objections to his evaluation in a letter to Orange County School Superintendent Patrick Rhodes.
Some parents have objected to the move, and Hankins has indicated he won't accept the offer for a lesser position.
In his letter to Rhodes, dated June 12 and which Hankins made public, Hankins details why he contends complaints cited in his end-of-year evaluation were not sufficient reasons for his demotion. He said that he plans to file a grievance appealing the demotion.
"I was provided literally five minutes notice before being asked to assemble my staff together to meet the newly appointed principal," Hankins said in an email. He noted that Jason Johnson, the high school's new principal, had been hired without the input of parents, students or teachers. The hiring process of previous principals, including Hankins, had included such input, Hankins said.
In the letter to Rhodes, Hankins cited examples of how Orange High had improved under his leadership.
"As performance evaluations are confidential under applicable law, the school system is not at liberty to share the rationale for any particular personnel decision, including the decision to offer Mr. Hankins a four year contract as an assistant principal upon the expiration of his current contract on June 30, 2012," the system said in a statement last month.
Asked to respond to Hankins letter, officials cited the previous statement and declined further comment.
In his letter, however, Hankins referred to several concerns apparently raised about his performance.
The issues included failure to consistently hold face-to-face weekly meetings with the administrative team, paying a coaching supplement to an employee in the athletic department using athletic funds, having consistent complaints about the athletic department, not being sufficiently authoritative, not having an administrator present during the latter half of the school prom, and not being present during several school events.
Hankins wrote that when a member of the administrative team couldn't attend a weekly meeting, he used other means to share information. Told this was not acceptable in his mid-year review, he said he made sure he met members weekly even if it meant multiple meetings.
In response to a statement by Rhodes that there were "situations of persistent noncompliance with financial processes and procedures," relating to athletic department funds, Hankins said he was never informed of these procedures, and before meeting with district officials, he was never told an employee could not be paid from the athletic funds.
Hankins asked that Rhodes examine the complaints made about the athletic department more closely.
Hankins said complaints have declined.
In response to concerns about his authoritativeness, Hankins stated "Being authoritative in my mind means working with people [and] guiding people to do, act or respond as you hoped they would."
Hankins also provided explanations for school events he was absent for.
Hankins citied examples of the positive impact he feels he had on Orange High School. The school had been listed as among the best in the nation by the U.S. News & World Report, SAT scores had improved, suspensions had been drastically reduced, higher graduation rates, and the creation of various programs that directly benefited students and the community.
"My contention is that I did a much better job of running Orange High School than I feel I was credited for," Hankins concluded.
HILLSBOROUGH-During the Orange County ..., 3 June 2012 [cached]
HILLSBOROUGH-During the Orange County School Board meeting last Tuesday, Phyllis Mack Horton and four other concerned parents presented the board with a petition to support Orange High School Principal Armond Hankins.
Late last month, Hankins announced that he had not been offered a new contract to continue next year in his current position as Principal of Orange High School. He was ultimately offered a position as an assistant principal at an unknown location.
Some have speculated that the decision to demote Hankins, who is African American, was at least in part motivated by his race.
Hankins' race had absolutely nothing to do with the decision, and the school system hopes he will accept the offer of continued employment as an assistant principal. The statement also said that the school board isn't at liberty to discuss the rationale behind any personnel matters.
In any event, Halkiotis says he doesn't believe Hankins is planning to accept the demotion.
"The school board actually voted two weeks ago to offer Mr. Hankins a contract as an assistant principal in the system," he says.

HILLSBOROUGH - It's a simple idea, ..., 20 April 2012 [cached]
HILLSBOROUGH - It's a simple idea, but Orange High School Principal Armond Hankins and dozens of teachers and students believe it can change the world: Rather than simply repaying a good deed, pay the favor forward to others.
Selfless giving is ingrained in Orange High's culture, Hankins said, but during the month of April, the school is putting a special emphasis on "paying it forward," an idea popularized by the 2000 film "Pay It Forward. This week, students and faculty members invited folks from all corners of the community - senior citizens, veterans, children in foster care and church groups - to attend an evening of entertainment followed by a spaghetti dinner.
It was all free to attendees, but for one request: Pass it on.
"Is is not how big or how small, it's just an opportunity that you take to give to one another just because - and not for anything in return," Hankins said.
Hankins said the idea grew from seeing the eponymous film, as well from as his experiences growing up in the church and the morals instilled in him by his mother.
He emphasized that Pay It Forward isn't about a single event. Throughout the month, students have been out in the community, making a conscious effort to give without expecting anything in return. In just about two weeks, the school's baseball team has raised about $7,000 to fight pediatric cancer, and players shaved their heads in solidarity with cancer patients for Thursday's game against rival Cedar Ridge High School.
"This is typical of the type of students that we have here," Hankins said.
