Thanks to generous donations from businesses throughout the state, 47 school principals attended the Kentucky Chamber Foundation’s Leadership Institute for School Principals in 2011. Through a grant from the AT&T Foundation and donations from Chamber members and non-members alike, principals selected for the program will attend at no cost to themselves. The participants were selected by an advisory board made up of business leaders and school superintendents.
