From Coach to Teacher | Palmetto Scene

Chapin High School Principal Dr. Akil Ross was recently named the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) 2018 National Principal of the Year. 

In this clip, Dr. Ross talks about growing up in Washington D.C., his love for football, and how the sport changed his life. 

“We are a thousand passions with one heartbeat." That's the mantra Dr. Ross created for the school. He aims to foster an environment where students can be challenged, while pursuing their own interests.
