Becky Henderson, principal at Gilbert Unified School District's Harris Elementary School, has been selected as a finalist in the Rodel Exemplary Principal Initiative. The program was created to recognize the success of Arizona's most exceptional principals and to train the next generation of school leaders. Henderson is one of 17 statewide finalists.
The names of the 10 Rodel Exemplary Principals will be announced later this month. Each Rodel exemplary principal will mentor three high-potential principals for two years to help them be better prepared to lead their own high-needs schools one day.
