Thanks to a partnership with the Columbia County Chamber of Commerce, school administrators welcome business partners in education to spend the day with them during a normal school day!

This program pairs business executives with a principal from one of the Columbia County schools and area private schools.


The morning is spent with the business executive shadowing the principal, learning the realities of leading a school, sharing management practices, and exploring needs and resource opportunities.


The Annual Principal for a Day event is hosted by the Columbia County Chamber Foundation, Inc. and Workforce and Education Committee in partnership with the Columbia County School District and several private schools.

Thank you to this year's sponsor Atlanta Gas Light.
