CPCO congratulates winners of Canada’s Outstanding Principals Award 2017

By Stephanie Zakhem

The Learning Partnership’s Canada’s Outstanding Principals program is celebrating its 13th anniversary and recognizing 40 exceptional leaders this year. Award nominations for the program were submitted by colleagues, parents, school staff and community members to celebrate these Principals’ leadership, innovation and ability to find solutions and opportunities within their school communities.

All winners will be honoured for their accomplishments at the annual gala on Feb. 28, 2017. The winners will also benefit from an exclusive five-day executive leadership training program at one of Canada’s top business schools: the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management. The program will introduce them to leadership and management practices, presented by business, government and education leaders, as well as Rotman faculty. Principals will also participate in a professional learning day hosted by CIBC, where they will have an opportunity to learn about today’s workforce from leaders in business, health and education.

We are thrilled to see four of CPCO’s valued Associates win the award this year! We got in touch with them and asked what does winning the award mean to them personally. Here is what they told us.
