Principal For A Day
In fall of 2018, Aiken County Public Schools held its first Principal For A Day event, inviting community leaders and elected officials to experience first-hand a day in the life of a school administrator. Quite an impressive group of community, business and political leaders including the mayors of both Burnettown and New Ellenton, The Mayor Pro Tempore of Jackson, County Council members, HR Managers, CEOs, Vice Presidents, Business Owners, Board Chairs, Directors, Writers, Radio Personalities and Pastors, joined us to learn more about the inner workings of our public schools and demonostrate their support for public education.
As enthusiasm for the event grew, some community leaders asked if they could participate in the second-annual Principal For A Day event. Among those who served as a guest principal were the mayor of Ridge Spring, the North Augusta Chief of Police, a United States Army Sargent, a member of the House of Representatives, an Attorney, the President of a Aiken Technical College, an Executive Editor, A Professor, County and City Council members, Chambers of Commerce Presidents, Business Owners, Directors, Financial Managers and Pastors.
We are thrilled to offer the opportunity to spend a day in the life of a Principal, and are grateful to those who have served as guest Principals.
