Several members of Winn-Dixie’s Miami-region team joined their school partners to show their support for education by becoming principals for a day. The program gave the Winn-Dixie team an opportunity to take part in school activiites, as well as meet and greet with students and faculty, all while building stronger connections in their communities.

Winn-Dixie store No. 353 Store Director Luis Valle, store No. 254 Store Director Humberto Sanchez, store No. 370 Store Director Jairo Villacicencio, store No. 287 Store Director Luis Rodriguez and Community Involvement Specialist Farrah Shoukry all took the opportunity to join their partners and share their excitement to make a positive impact in the classroom. The team adopted their new roles as principals by touring their schools, engaging students during classroom discussions and welcoming teachers to their stores for personal tours.

“It was extremely fulfilling to work with our school partners to take part in a program that showcases Winn-Dixie’s support for education,” said Shoukry. “This opportunity gave myself and each store director a rewarding experience and further strengthened our role as a caring and committed corporate partner.”

The team members partnered with the following local school partners for the principal-for-a-day program: store No. 287 Store Director Luis Rodriguez – Hammocks Middle School; store No. 254 Store Director Humberto Sanchez – Olympia Heights Elementary School; store No. 370 Store Director Jairo Villacicencio – Sunset Park Elementary School; store No. 353 Store Director Luis Valle – E.W. Stirrup Elementary; Community Involvement Specialist Farrah Shoukry – South Miami Middle School.
