American University of Sharjah (AUS) hosted its annual Sharakah Schools Principals and Counselors Appreciation Day recently on campus, with 85 principals and school counselors representing 54 schools attending, including representatives from schools in Jordan and Saudi Arabia.
The event, organized by the AUS Sharakah program, honors and celebrates the significant partnerships between AUS and Sharakah schools in the UAE and beyond. Welcoming principals and counselors to the AUS campus, the gathering provided a platform for these educational leaders to delve into the university's latest offerings and the array of support services available to students.
During the event, guests were informed about the diverse scholarship opportunities offered by AUS, ranging from the Sharakah Scholarship and Chancellor's Scholarship to Financial Grant Awards, Deans' List and Chancellor's List Scholarships, Family Tuition Grants, as well as the recognition for the Most Active Athlete Student and Most Active Student through specialized scholarships.
Recognizing the pivotal role that principals and counselors play in guiding students towards a prosperous future, Ali Shuhaimy, Executive Director of Enrollment Management at AUS, expressed gratitude for their dedication and partnership in shaping the academic journeys of young minds.
“The event served as a gesture of recognition and appreciation for the invaluable contributions these educational leaders make to the field of education,” he said.
