A big honor for a local educator.  Cope Middle School Principal Judy Grooms is this year's Louisiana Middle School Principal of the Year.  Grooms has been at Cope for the past 23 years -- as a teacher, counselor, and now prinicipal.  In addition to receiving several prizes -- including $2,500 -- Grooms will also represent Louisiana later this year when she travels to Washington, D.C. to be recognized and honored at the White House.
