Underwood Memorial Hospital Collaboration

Yesterday, I was joined by two other representatives from our school district (Ed Muprhy, Director of Pupil Personnel Services and Kathy Stalter-Allen, Option II Coordinator) at a meeting with three members of the Underwood Memorial Hospital team. This encounter was one that I was able to coordinate along with John Graham, Chief Operating Officer for the hospital. Mr. Graham was also a participant.

We were able to exchange ideas for collaboration between our two organizations -- especially ways that the hospital could provide meaningful experiences that our students could incorporate into our Option II program or our new Service Learning graduation requirement that starts with this year's freshman class.

We look forward to working more closely with the hospital and finalizing some of these opportunities so that we can capitalize on the wealth of experiences that this large organization can provide our students.
