NEWS ROUNDUP: Newspaper Spotlights New DPS Superintendent
New DPS Superintendent Featured In Friend Newspaper: The Friend Sentinel has done quite a write-up on Daryl Schrunk, Dorchester Public School's new superintendent. According to the story, Mr. Schrunk said he was very selective when it came to applying for a superintendent’s position. The former Columbus Lakeview Elementary administrator told the newspaper that Dorchester School is "a diamond in the rough," as described by a former Wayne State College instructor. "Schrunk said he has a solid vision for Dorchester and is committed to education. The key is a strategic plan that will allow the community to participate," according to the story. "His plan includes five areas: perseverance, respect, integrity, decision-making and excellence (PRIDE). One of his goals is to find people in the district with whom the students can connect." He adds: "Dorchester needs to be Dorchester no matter what."

Former DHS track standout Janet (Uher) Schrick ran the 2-miler in 15:36 and was 1st in her age group. Dorchester student Carly Rains, 11, took 6th in the 14-and-under division. Clarissa Bors took 8th in the 15-20 group. On the men's side, Jamie Karl ran the two-miler in 13:19, good enough for 2nd place in his category.
