Robby Peterson is among 56 Kentucky school leaders who will receive year-long executive-level leadership training usually reserved for Kentucky’s top CEOs. The Leadership Institute for School Principals is a program of the Kentucky Chamber Foundation.
Peterson’s participation in the Leadership Institute for School Principals is sponsored by a generous contribution from Maker’s Mark Distillery.
“I am very honored to have this opportunity to participate in the Leadership Institute,” said Peterson.
“This will give me a greater perspective of my own leadership abilities and help me grow as a principal and bring new ideas back to our school and community.”
Peterson and the other selected principals will attend classes this summer at the Center for Creative Leadership in Greensboro, N.C., a top-ranked global provider of executive education founded in 1970 that established an education and nonprofit section in 1988. The principals will also attend follow-up sessions in the fall and early next year in Kentucky.
Elementary, middle and high school principals from across Kentucky representing both public and private schools applied for the institute. The participants were selected by an advisory board made up of business leaders and school superintendents.
“Employers understand the positive impact of strong leadership in the workplace, and the same is true of schools,” noted Dave Adkisson, secretary of the Kentucky Chamber Foundation and president and CEO of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.
