Words of Wisdom

As part of the application process, all National Blue Ribbon Schools are invited to nominate their principal for the Terrel H. Bell Award for Outstanding Leadership. While attending the Annual National Blue Ribbon Ceremony last fall, the seven 2015 Terrel H. Bell Awardees took some time out to talk about their work.

The first video, top, introduces the principals and the primary challenges facing their schools. In the second, the seven talk about Leadership. Future videos will cover specific leadership challenges, a principal’s “aha” moment, and advice for new principals.
