Hillsborough principal award contest
Here's an idea for a cheap holiday present: Nominate your favorite middle or high school principal in Hillsborough for the Ambassadors In Education Award.
The winner receives a $5,000 grant for her school. Hillsborough is the only Florida participant in the program, sponsored by the MetLife Foundation, recognizing principals in 25 urban districts. The award honors principals who are building partnerships and promoting safety and service in the community.
Nominations are due by March 7, 2008. They are available here: Download nomination_form_2008.doc
The winner will be announced in late March. Each year, the recognition alternates between principals and teachers. Past Hillsborough winners include the following:
Gary Todd Long, teacher, Plant City High
Kevin McCarthy, former principal, Robinson High
Julia Barnes, teacher, Young Middle
Bobby Smith, principal, Benito Middle
Sherrie Mueller, teacher, Plant City High
