Congratulations are due David McGehee on being named Superintendent of the Year by the Missouri Association of School Administrators. McGehee is a strong leader, a consistent advocate for the children in the district, and he deserves this recognition from his peers.
Of course, Dr. McGehee doesn’t do this alone - a fact he is quick to point out. His fellow district administrators, principals and vice-principals, teachers and other staff all contribute to the excellent learning environment in our schools. But it is clear that the leadership they receive from Dr. McGehee helps move the district in the right direction.
I hope the citizens of Lee’s Summit and other communities served by the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District realize what an exceptional school system they have. Keep up the good work, everyone!
