Congratulations Mr. Mikel

Congratulations to Mr. Mikel for his new position at Bremen Public Schools.

Last night at the Bremen school board meeting, Mr. Mikel was approved as the new Superintendent of Schools.

Mr. Mikel has been a principal and Assistant Superintendent for WCSC in charge of Curriculum and Instruction. He has been instrumental in overseeing the recent Writer's Workshop initiative as well as working with the Reading and Math coaches responsible for helping our schools with Accelerated Reading and Accelerated Math. He wrote all grants and grant budgets and organized all textbook adoption processes and textbook rental. He also served as expulsion officer and helped oversee the Alternative to Suspension and Expulsion program, plus many other things too numerous to list.

We wish him luck in his next assignment. I've truly enjoyed his quiet sense of humor and his ability to get things done. He will be missed.

Congratulations to you, Russ! I have learned so much from you. While I'm sad for us in Wawasee, the students and staff at Bremen will greatly benefit from your expertise and leadership.
