PINCKNEYVILLE, Ill. – To highlight National Principals Month and to learn more about the needs of local schools, state Rep. Nathan Reitz, D-Steeleville, recently participated in the “Principal for a Day” program at Pinckneyville Community High School.

“I am thankful for the opportunity to meet with Pinckneyville teachers and students,” said Reitz “And to see the great work Principal Tony Wilson has done despite difficulties and uncertainty with the state’s budget.”

October is National Principals Month, and is a time to honor and celebrate the hard work of principals to ensure schools succeed. Throughout the month of October, Reitz will be visiting schools throughout Southern Illinois to participate in the “Principal for a Day” program and continue discussing the needs of local schools, teachers and students. 

“Schools in Southern Illinois were hit hardest during the state’s budget impasse,” continued Reitz. “So I will continue fighting to make sure our schools and teachers receive the resources they need and that our children receive the quality education they deserve.”
