Written by Don Ratzlaff Wednesday, 20 June 2007 09:56We want to publicly acknowledge Gordon Mohn for his contributions to the educational health of Unified School District 410 during his 14 years as superintendent. His retirement at the end of this month will bring to a close a chapter of steady and progressive leadership for the district.
Mohn’s administration has been characterized by at least two passions: that kids from all economic, social and ability backgrounds be given a fair chance to develop their potential to the fullest, and a desire to collaborate with other entities to establish new relationships and approaches that would work for betterment of all parties.
We’ll also miss his steady and thoughtful demeanor that invited conversation rather than demanded acquiescence when issues arose. He modeled servant leadership and proved it could be an effective tool for progress.
We wish him the best in his next role. —DR
