First UK Win of the William J Davis Award

Congratulations to Professor Christopher Day, Professor Qing Gu and Professor Pam Sammons, who have been awarded the prestigious William J Davis Award for their paper The Impact of Leadership on Student Outcomes: how successful school leaders use transformational and instructional strategies to make a difference.

The William J Davis Award is given annually to the author(s) of the most outstanding article published in Educational Administration Quarterly (EAQ) during the preceding volume year. The article selection is made by a three-member panel chosen from the EAQ Editorial Board members who have not published in the volume being reviewed.

This is the first time since the introduction of the Award in 1979 that it has been presented to English academics so it a great honour to receive it!
