Luncheon Sponsored by:
Wednesday, October 10, 2012
The Chamber's Partners in Education Committee, in conjunction with the Cherokee County School District & Chamber member private schools, will host the Annual "Principal For A Day" program in October. This program encourages increased awareness of public & private education among community leaders and also furthers relationships between Cherokee County schools and the larger community.
The half-day program provides participants with the opportunity to learn first-hand about current educational issues, the changing roles of school administrators and the daily challenges facing educators, while offering principals the perspective and input of a person outside of the system. The program concludes with a seated luncheon from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Chamber's Terrace Level.
