Caycee Spears, principal at Logan County High School, started this school year with a few extra tools of the trade due to specialized leadership training usually reserved for the nation’s top CEOs.
Spears and 44 other selected Kentucky principals began attending class this summer at the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) in Greensboro, N.C., a top-ranked, global provider of leadership development founded in 1970. The year-long training program is offered to principals across the state by the Kentucky Chamber Foundation’s Leadership Institute for School Principals.
“Our local business community is a strong supporter of programs that help ensure our students are work- and college-ready when they graduate,” said Spears. “I’m grateful to Logan Aluminum for this invaluable leadership development opportunity that will go far toward helping me foster and strengthen a successful learning environment.”
Logan Aluminum and other businesses are supportive of the program as part of their community-enrichment efforts. The generosity of the business community is making a real difference in school culture, as reflected in a recent impact study of the program by CCL.
“Logan Aluminum is proud to support our local principals as they strive to gain additional leadership skills in their ongoing effort to make a positive impact on their students and schools,” said Randy Schumaker, President of Logan Aluminum.
