Every day in Chatham county, principals head to work, thinking of one thing: the success of their students.

Principals are champions for kids, and work to ensure they have everything they need to learn, thrive and grow. They also know that with proper nutrition, kids are more likely to reach their full potential. Through their efforts, they are leading the way to end childhood hunger for students in their schools.

Principal Amy Doty at Perry Harrison Elementary is a perfect example. She visits the cafeteria on a regular basis to make sure things are running smoothly and that the kids are all getting a nutritious meal. If a student comes in late, she has been known to walk that child down to the cafeteria to ensure they still receive breakfast. When the cafeteria is understaffed, she even jumps in herself and finds other staff to support the hardworking school nutrition department.

Yet, this year, principals are facing an immense set of challenges as the pandemic continues.

Despite these obstacles, principals continue to collaborate with school nutrition departments, teachers and other school staff to get kids the food they need, providing critical support in this ever-changing school year.

This Principal Appreciation Month, we recognize leaders like Principal Doty who are behind the scenes, making decisions to help staff and students stay safe, healthy and nourished.
