CPPP Graduate Testimonials

The benefits of the CPPP at UCM are clearly reflected in the professional success of a CPPP graduate.

Anna McGraw

"After going through the administrative courses with such strong instructional leaders, I found my true desire to be a school administrator. As a principal in the Lee's Summit School District, I use the strategies and knowledge I learned from UCM's CPPP cohort on a daily basis."

Anna McGraw, CPPP class of 2008
Principal, Underwood Elementary School - Lee's Summit School District

"The CPPP takes the coursework and transforms it into real-world applications that fuel the desire to become an effective leader.”

Robbie Shepherd, CPPP class of 2008
Principal, Osage Trail Middle School - Fort Osage School District

"CPPP is not your typical sit and get program. While I certainly received the theoretical concepts of being an administrator, the numerous opportunities to observe and put those skills into practice were invaluable. I highly recommend this program to anyone aiming to be a leader within education."
