Congratulations to Matt Donaldson, Principal of Empire High School! Representatives from Grand Canyon University surprised Mr. Donaldson in a meeting with other Vail principals to recognize him as a Grand Canyon University STEM Principal of the Month. STEM refers to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

Recognizing high school principals across Arizona who encourage and promote STEM education, GCU selected Mr. Donaldson in part because Empire’s students now take an average of four or five science classes versus the required three and allows student interest to guide course offerings. As a result, students are engaged in courses that range from Biology to Honors Sonoran Desert Ecology. Mr. Donaldson represents Vail’s commitment to providing high quality STEM education!
