The Passing of Past Commissioner Richard Mills
SAANYS joins administrators across the state in expressing our condolences to the family and friends of Commissioner Richard Mills on his passing at the end of last week. Commissioner Mills’ vision to utilize and focus the various institutions – libraries, museums, higher education, and public schools – on common goals was masterful and underscored the power of focusing multiple state educational entities on common goals. Commissioner Mills was steadfast in his commitment to thinking in terms of a P-16 educational system to comprehensively address the needs of students in our state. We are appreciative of his leadership and dedication to education in his tenure as Commissioner.
