Director's Corner


Winter 2018

Gary Appel

With the start of a new calendar year, the Great Lakes Comprehensive Center is extending a warm welcome to a new member of its advisory board – Dr. Jeffrey Butts – of Indiana. Dr. Butts is Superintendent of the Metropolitan School District of Wayne Township in Indianapolis and President of the Indiana Association of Public School Superintendents (IAPSS). In his leadership role with the association, he is working hard to strengthen the collective voice of its members. In his words, “through collaboration we become stronger…” At GLCC, we also value collaboration as we work to build partnerships within and across states. We look forward to Dr. Butts sharing his rich experience and perspective with GLCC.

As always, reach out to me with any thoughts or questions. I’d love to hear from you.
