Whether the events were open to the public or were planned specifically for participants, the friendships and conversations among those attending were at the core of the event.
When talking with former staff members at a recent gathering, there was a genuine interest in catching up on news about participants and their families.

She sincerely thanks everyone who helped prepare her and supported her so that she could follow her dreams. After graduation, she headed to the warm waters of FL earning a BS with high honors from Eckerd College in biology, with minors in chemistry and mathematics. She stuck with salt water and moved to Hawaii to teach math and science to middle and high school students, later working as a research chemist along the beautiful coast of Maine. She then earned a PhD in wildlife conservation, minoring in ecology, evolution and behavior, from the University of MN, studying elk calf mortality in Yellowstone National Park post-wolf reintroduction spoiler alert…think bears.
She headed straight back to the ocean as a postdoctoral scholar at Scripps Institution of Oceanography University of CA, San Diego where she took ceramics with her husband, ate pancakes on the Ocean Beach Pier, played with her dogs in the surf, and conducted field research on emperor penguins in Antarctica.
She then took a faculty position with the Teton Science Graduate School where she lived, skied, hiked, etc. Inshe moved back to the land of 10, lakes near the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and is currently a research wildlife biologist with the US Geological Survey studying wolves and white-tailed deer. She lives with her husband, John, and two daughters, Sova and Etta, in Ely, MN, where the whole family has fun exploring canoe country.
She has also participated in USGS wild manatee captures for health assessments and radio-tagging in Florida and Belize. Her work as a wildlife biologist has taken her to over 15 countries. She has been filmed and interviewed for various media outlets including National Geographic.
While she is truly grateful for all of these adventures — her most fulfilling is that of being wife and mom. She daydreams of one day moving back to the ocean to support dolphin conservation and research, practice yoga and hula on the beach, and take surf lessons with her daughters. His background was further enhanced by psychology, educational psychology, school finance and school administration degrees from University of Rochester and Northern Illinois University.
McCormick guided substantial changes in the district, fueled by a doubling of the student population from to When he came to Kaneland inall students from elementary through high school were housed in two buildings and multiple mobile classrooms on one single campus. The front door of the high school opened directly into the cafeteria, while theater and musical productions were performed on the gymnasium stage.
The District Administrative Office was the wrestling room. There were only a few computers, no Wi-Fi network, no soccer or baseball, no Kaneland Arts Initiative. Necessary improvements for all facets of the district required increased financing through a voter referendum in that ultimately failed to pass. Because of the lack of funding, the Board of Education took the courageous step of, among other things, eliminating all sports and extracurricular activities.
Motivated by the proud and prominent tradition of sports teams, boosters wanted to raise money to fund sports. However, the Board took the position that it was all or nothing. Through this experience, the tone was set for the next fifteen years by openly communicating the issues, trusting the judgement of the Board, as well as encouraging and relying on the involvement and commitment of community members.
Over time, several referendums were passed leading to four new elementary schools; a modern new middle school; new softball, baseball, and soccer fields; and enlargement of the high school, including a new state-of-the-art auditorium. Faculty, staff, curriculum sports and extracurricular activities also expanded significantly. McCormick would be the first to say that none of this could have been achieved without the dedication and teamwork of everyone.
However, his leadership was vital to accomplishing change. He was deeply committed to honesty and teamwork, his guiding principles in working with voters to pass referendums.
