Principal for a Day

Local Community Leaders Live a Day in the Life of a HCCSC Principal
HCCSC Administrators and Principal for a Day ParticipantsOne day a year community members have an opportunity to shadow our leaders within the district to get a glimpse of a 'day in the life' of a Huntington County Community Schools Principal. Principal for a day has become an anticipated tradition for HCCSC. While participating in this role, our guests greet students as they arrive, share morning announcements and answer questions big and small.

"I was blown away with Riverview today.  I felt the love of the teachers and the students in that school.  Jaymee has a big heart.  It was a big hat to wear and it was amazing to see what she accomplishes in a day." states Lynette Dowden, Owner of the Party Shop and Riverview Principal for a Day.

"It was an honor to see the impact and influence a principal can have on our kids." states Mike Hill, Lead Pastor at Life Church and Lincoln Elementary Principal for a Day. Mike continues his sentiment towards the importance of coming along side the school corporation to support our students as a community.

"I have been in every school this fall talking about the United Way Campaign and it is evident that it is a community partnership amongst the school and outside agencies is very important." states Sarah Kemp, Executive Director of the United Way of Huntington County and Flint Springs Elementary Principal for a Day.  "Seeing what schools have to take on, now more than ever, it is important that we keep our partnerships strong and we get parents more involved in their children's education." exclaims Kemp.

"It was really amazing to see all of the opportunities our High School and Learning Center have to offer.  There are so many programs that you can go through at the Learning Center that can lead to a viable job that in turn, feeds into the future of our community." states Doug Selig, Vice President of Patient Care at Parkview Hospitals and The Learning Center Principal for a Day.

Speaking to community leaders, John Trout states "Our partnership with the community is important to us and it is a two-way street."  This is not just the school corporation 'taking' from the community.  It is also the school corporation becoming engaged with the community in creative ways to serve our students needs."

Spending a day engaging in the roles of others provides insight into the strengths and needs of our leaders. We are thankful for the community leaders that participated in Principal for a Day and look forward to work together in other meaningful ways to invest into our community's future; the youth of Huntington County.
