PREPS - Collaborating to Empower Others (CEO) will provide distinguished school leaders with an avenue to sharpen their skill set and acquire new strategies to lead. The Phil Hardin Foundation has once again committed to helping make a difference in public school leadership across the state by providing funds through a grant which will enable reduced cost for the Mississippi school districts.
