Cal State Fullerton alumnus John Briquelet didn't plan on becoming an educator. But after a nearly 35-year career in the field, where he has served Southern California students as a teacher, coach, assistant principal and principal, Briquelet has been named the 2022 California Principal of the Year and a finalist for the 2023 National Principal of the Year Award by the National Association of Secondary School Principals. 'Principals and teachers go to school every day and they work to help kids,' Briquelet, who graduated in 1989, said.
