2013 Canyons School Administrator of the Year - Greg Leavitt, Draper Park Middle School


Greg Leavitt is the man you want as a leader.  The principal of Draper Park Middle School is known for his knack for attracting excellent employees and creating strong teams to deliver a stellar education to students. The former math teacher and school counselor views his leadership role through the lens of outstanding customer service. He continually seeks to improve education for students, and to ensure his product is the top choice for families in a competitive field of alternatives, from charter schools to private and parochial schools.  Leavitt readily accepts this and other challenges. In the past year, he steadfastly led his school community in the transition to new school boundaries, a school name change from Crescent View to Draper Park, and a school relocation to a new city. For his dedication to providing outstanding leadership and customer service to the Draper Park community, it is the Board of Education’s pleasure to honor Greg Leavitt with the 2013 Apex Award for School Administrator of the Year.
