Palm Beach County School District's 2016 Principal of the Year
Anthony Lockhart Ed.D.
Principal, Lake Shore Middle School, Belle Glade
Under Dr. Lockhart’s leadership, Lake Shore Middle improved two letter grades in just one year. Previously, Lake Shore Middle had earned an F for two straight years.
Students at Lake Shore Middle recite this pledge at the beginning of every school day:
As I work toward achieving excellence, I will count on my community to be patient, supportive, and to hold me accountable. I realize that my success depends on me. To that end, my ability to learn, behave well, and respect authority are reflected in the investment that I make in myself. My hard work and positive attitude tell me one thing; I am a winner! Failure is not an option!
