SUPERINTENDENT SPOTLIGHT: Sherry Darnell (Lake County)

Our Superintendent Spotlight for October is Sherry Darnell who has served as the superintendent in Lake County for nearly three years.  

Ms. Darnell was excited to talk about many new programs in her district, including a new ACT prep program, a new attendance initiative, a balanced literacy block, and embedded professional development in partnership with the Northwest Core office.  She stated, "there are so many exciting opportunities for growth this year, and I can't say enough good things about my leadership team!" 

When we asked Ms. Darnell what the best part of her job is, she said, "knowing that all employees and I are working toward the same goal each day - to truly educate, guide, and influence the students in Lake County to help become fine citizens who will be on the leadership of our school system.  I am very humbled by the love of the students."
