Union 3rd Grader is Superintendent for the Day

Kail Z. spent his Friday as Superintendent of the Day. Kail and Dr. Clendening spent the day touring the schools, meeting faculty and staff and stopped in to say hello to some of his friends who attend different elementary schools.  Dr. Clendening and Kail met some members of his team for lunch at Greek's Pizzeria.  Kail's favorite subjects are math and science so he was excited to visit a physics class at the high school where he and Dr. Clendening played a game that the students had just completed.

In Mr. Rose's engineering class, Kail got to see a 3D printer in action as well as some prototypes that high school students had created.

Before leaving the high school, Kail and Dr. Clendening stopped to talk about the SAGE Awards.  Kail was familiar with Daniel Mercer and his story as he had attended the '54' Baseball Camp held in honor of Daniel.

Kail was excited to visit Needham Elementary to see his friend David.  At Webb Elementary he was able to meet our 2018 Teacher of the Year, Angie Clendening.

After lunch, Kail visited the rest of the buildings.  He was excited to see Dr. Halik who is currently the interim principal at Custer Baker Intermediate School.  Dr. Halik spent a semester at Union a couple of years ago.  He also met one of our School Resource Officers, Mary Helms.
