May 20, 2022 – The ultimate role model. An epitome of an amazing leader. All about the students.
These are just a few ways that Rutledge H. Pearson principal, Carolyn Davis, is being described by her school community as they celebrate her selection as the 2022 Florida Principal of the Year.
The annoucement was made Thursday to the surprised Davis as her students and team of educators chanted her name.
Team Duval was there to capture the moment. Watch as leaders such as Superintendent Dr. Diana Greene describe the impact Davis has had, particularly in taking Pearson from a D-rated school to an A. Listen also to why Davis says this award is meaningful but ultimately students are the top priority.
