Some principals never stop giving to their students. Dalia Jimenez, a retired principal in Tampa, FL donated $54,000 to help fund a covered play court for her former school Anderson Elementary.  The Tampa Tribune reported that Jimenez, who was principal of Anderson for 20 years, raised the money by selling Publix stock. Her donation will be supplemented by PTA contributions and matching funds from the school district in order to fully fund the project that may cost upwards of $150,000.  Jimenez’s motivation for such exceptional generosity was to provide a play area for the students that shielded them from the brutal sun.  “I’m spending my children’s inheritance, but I wanted to do something for the school,” says Jimenez.
