As their students begin to enjoy summer vacation, several local principals are heading back to the classroom today as part of a new management training program sponsored by the Century Club of George Mason University.

Executive Tools for Leaders of Tomorrow, held June 28 and 29 at the Prince William Campus, is bringing principals from Yorkshire Elementary School, Fred Lynn Middle School, and Langley High School together with business executives from companies such as DynCorp, Lockheed Martin, and Wang for a learning and networking experience. Faculty and staff members from the Graduate School of Education, the School of Management, and the Office of Continuing and Professional Education also are participating in the program.

“The opportunity for our folks to share perspectives and best practices with business leaders is a win-win situation for everyone,” says Mike Campbell, business partnership coordinator for Prince William County Public Schools.”

“We hope this will be an annual event,” says Ed Lewis, manager of site education for Lockheed Martin in Manassas and president of the Century Club. “We’re excited that, in addition to learning the latest management techniques, this group will be forging long-term partnerships that are sure to benefit all involved for years to come.”

The Century Club is a nonprofit membership organization composed of local business, government, and professional organizations dedicated to partnering with George Mason University on programs that benefit business, the university, and the local community.
