1. Ingram, Bridget C. After Opportunity Knocks: Factors Associated with the Persistence of Middle- and Late-career African American Female Principals.

Degree: EdD, College of Education, 2016, Ashland University

This study explored factors associated with the persistence of middle- and late-career African American female principals. In addition to the central focus, this study also sought to determine what roles race and gender, identity shifts, psychological contracts and role definition played in the persistence of these principals. There is limited research surrounding the lived experiences of African American female principals with little emphasis on middle- and late-career females. This study employed a qualitative design utilizing five principals from the same midwestern state. All participants had served as principals for a minimum of ten years, and were involved in in-depth interviews. Once interview and document data were collected, several themes emerged: a) Personal characteristics, b) Servant leadership, and c) Spiritual Guidance. Issues surrounding the persistence of middle- and late-career African American female principals within past and present educational settings are discussed in this study, followed by implications, and researcher reflections. Advisors/Committee Members: Olive, James L. (Committee Chair).

Subjects/Keywords: African Americans; African American Studies; Education; Educational Leadership; Multicultural Education; African American female principals; leadership persistence; school leadership
