At my board meeting last night of the Lucas County Educational Service Center, The Collingwood Fitness Center Pool was named in recognition and honor of my 12 years of dedicated service to the students and families of Lucas County. This very same building was the former Jewish Community Center where I attended many programs as a teenager. One thing I am very proud of is our Challenger Learning Center. I first learned of this program at a National School Board Convention and said to the Superintendent “I want a Challenger Space Program for the kids in our district.” On October 1, 2003 that dream became real! It’s all about what is best for the students in our district, I am proud to have served all of you to the best of my abilities.
