Berrien County has always provided excellence in education and will continue to improve strategies to make students successful. This continued improvement is essential for performance toward the vision of the Berrien County School District. I am committed to igniting a passion for lifelong learning for all students. I believe program development and management must continue to help facilitate change and improvement within the district. I believe with education reform and funding concerns, the students of Berrien County must continue to be our highest priority as we prepare them for a global economy. We must continue to be mission focused and work to build a consensus around the strategic initiatives of the district.
