October is National Principals Month

October 1, 2021

Celebrated every October, National Principals Month is an opportunity for DECA members, advisors and communities to celebrate and honor our incredible principals for their visionary leadership and tireless pursuit of success for each student.

The past year and a half hasn't been easy for anyone, yet principals and school administrators have persisted as beacons of light in for communities. Not only have they gone above and beyond to ensure their students’ academic success, they’ve also worked tirelessly to protect the health and safety of every person in their learning communities — often with little or rapidly changing guidance. With every new challenge, they’ve risen to the occasion and led their learning community forward with the bold leadership it deserves because they are the experts in what their students and schools need.
