Dr. Mason Clark Wins Principal Leadership Award

Principal Leadership Award


Representatives from Florida TaxWatch traveled to Naples last month to present Dr. Mason Clark, former principal of Golden Gate Middle School, with their esteemed Principal Leadership Award.


The goal of the Principal Leadership Awards program is to identify Florida's most effective principals in high-risk K-12 public schools, recognize and reward their work, and promote their transformational practices throughout the state. The program analyzes student performance data over several consecutive years, and the results are weighted to find those principals making a difference in communities that need the most attention.


In addition to the recognition, Dr. Clark was able to choose one lucky student to receive a two-year Florida prepaid scholarship. That honor went to Maranica Cassy. Congratulations to both Dr. Clark and Ms. Cassy, and thank you, Florida TaxWatch!
