    Our Superintendent is the official spokesperson for the corporation, and we’re quite fortunate that he is well-spoken and comfortable speaking in challenging situations. Most people know him as the Superintendent, and he is in charge. Not all leaders have the skills and willingness to take on the media during a crisis, but I think, especially in a public-serving entity like schools, when you have a leader who can handle the role of spokesperson, it is to everyone’s benefit that they do so – at least in the initial stages of or following a crisis.
