passion runs through her veins
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Rosette Brown, principal of McNair Magnet Middle, has been named a regional principal of the year by Magnet Schools of America (MSA), the national association for magnet and theme-based schools.
This annual award recognizes exemplary magnet school principals from MSA’s eight regions who have demonstrated a strong commitment to maximizing learning opportunities for all students through theme-based education, while also setting high expectations within their schools and communities.
Region 3 includes Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
McNair Magnet Middle has been funded by 2004 and 2013 Magnet Schools Assistance Program grant federal dollars. It is an MSA merit award winning school twice in the last 13 years, and a Florida Arts Alliance Network school.
As a young girl, Brown attended Poinsett, former name of the segregated school that is now McNair. Then, she became a teacher, assistant principal and principal of the same school now named as a magnet school to attract a diverse group of students to study STEM and the arts.
“Since 2001 as the principal, Mrs. Brown’s passion runs through her veins and trickles into every nook and cranny of the building,” said Cari Kupec, project director of magnet schools.
“She demonstrates commitment to leading and learning through her servant leadership and her steadfast respect for every faculty, staff, student, and stakeholder regardless of race, national origin, or religion.”
Brown will be recognized during an awards ceremony held at Magnet Schools of America’s 35th national conference hosted by Los Angeles Unified School District in Los Angeles, California April 27-29, 2017.
She is also eligible to be selected as the National Magnet School Principal of the Year, which will be announced on the last day of the national conference.
