Congratulations, Mr. Corman!

As you may have heard, Mr. DeRossett has accepted a position that began January 1, 2015 achieving his goal of becoming a superintendent.  It is always wonderful to see someone work so hard and accomplish the desire of his heart–and we should celebrate that with him!  I know I wish him well as he takes what he has learned at PTSC and moves on to lead another district.

As I began to consider the needs of Boone Grove High School and the type of person that could provide leadership for our next steps, there was one name that continuously rose to the top of my thinking.  I was looking for someone with a proven track record of building positive relationships, someone that could inspire others, someone that consistently demonstrates out of the box thinking, someone that knows how to coach others to excellence, and someone that stands with others shoulder to shoulder doing the hard work that needs to be done.  That person is Mr. Corman.

I hope you will join me in congratulating Mr. Corman on this new position.  We have many things to celebrate and look forward to as we begin 2015.  I hope you will join me in anxious anticipation of great things to come for every student, every day!
