2017-18 Milken EducatorsPhoto 22 of 44
It's never easy to surprise the principal, but on January 19, 2018, we got it done at Pass Christian High School, where we presented Principal Dr. Robyn Killebrew with Mississippi's 2017-18 Milken Educator Award and $25,000. Since taking over at PCHS in 2014, Principal Killebrew has created an "academy" for entering freshmen to smooth their transition to high school and an ACT "boot camp" to boost college test scores.
Robyn is described as a “whatever it takes” leader. Once, when a school bus couldn’t finish its run, Principal Killebrew jumped behind the wheel; when students wanted to help nearby Baton Rouge after massive floods, she drove them there herself. "I have to thank my faculty and students," the principal said at her surprise notification. "They make me look good each and every day."
