Launched in 1995, Principal For A Day® has drawn critical attention and funding to address the challenges facing our City’s public schools. Throughout the week of May 15, New York City business professionals and school leaders took part in a variety of activities at public schools across the five boroughs. These opportunities allowed participating professionals to celebrate the accomplishments of the PENCIL network, connect with successful programs, and create new solutions to solve challenges facing public schools.

On the evening of Thursday, May 18, the PENCIL network came together to celebrate their work supporting student and school success. This celebratory event included a discussion of the role of business in supporting public education, recognition and awards for network members, and a special reception with cocktails, music, mingling, and more.
