The Clearwater Arts Alliance in cooperation with Arts for a Complete Education/St. Petersburg Arts Alliance sponsors a Principals’ Appreciation Breakfast to recognize and to celebrate the leadership role that principals play and to thank them for their support of arts education in their schools. In even numbered years it focuses on north county schools, takes place at Ruth Eckerd Hall, and features student performances and key note speakers. Major sponsors in 2016 included Bright House Networks and USF St. Petersburg College of Education. This wonderful advocacy event brings together educational, cultural, political and civic leaders to honor principals for their support of arts education.
