Belmont Elementary students credit principal for school's success

The heart and soul of Belmont Elementary School in west Baltimore is among five principals honored this month. Baltimore City principals put their heart into leading their schools, and five of them are receiving the Heart of the Schools Award from the Fund for Educational Excellence. It's an award that highlights principals who have built excellent school cultures in which students are excited to learn and where teachers feel valued. When students walk into Belmont Elementary School, Principal Tiffany Etheridge wants them to feel like they're among family and in a place that feels like home.
