Dana Butler Wins Golden Apple Leadership Award

Award honors outstanding leadership in Pre-K through 12th grade schools

I am pleased to announce that Mr. Dana Butler has won the 2016 Stanley C. Golder Leadership Award. The award honors the exemplary performance of a PreK-12th grade principal or head of school from throughout Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. 
Mr. Dana Butler is a 1998 graduate of Roosevelt's Educational Administration Program, which at the time provided teachers like Mr. Butler with the state certification needed to become a principal.   As principal of Ruiz Elementary School, he has worked tirelessly to create an effective partnership with Roosevelt for the training of new elementary teachers.
The leadership award is presented in memory of Stanley C. Golder, a founding board member of Golden Apple, whose energy, creativity and commitment to Golden Apple’s mission set the highest standard for dedication and accomplishment. The selection criteria for the award is based on:
  1. Personal excellence
  2. Balanced and collaborative leadership
  3. Commitment to student achievement
  4. Expertise in curriculum, instruction, and assessment
As the 2016 award recipient, Mr. Butler will receive a cash award of $10,000 to be used for his own professional development and a school project of his choosing.

Mr. Butler was recognized at the Golden Apple Awards for Excellence in Teaching and Leadership annual event on May 20, 2016 and during the broadcast of the televised show on WTTW/Channel 11.  Click here to learn more and view the broadcast.
