Former Park High School Principal Efe Agbamu continues to draw praise for being selected principal of the year even after she left the school.

U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar met with Agbamu in Washington, D.C. on Friday to congratulate her on being named 2011 Minnesota Secondary Principal of the Year.

"There is nothing more critical than providing our children with a competitive, world-class education so they can be prepared for the jobs of tomorrow," Klobuchar said. "Efe's passion and dedication to her students make her an excellent choice for this award and we are proud to have her represent Minnesota."

Agbamu received the award in January. She was Park's principal for four years until this past summer. She left District 833 in July for a job in the St. Paul school district.
