news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:   Mr. "It was a dark and stormy night" Phil Grimm came once again to tell us a bit about his life.

It was a dark and stormy night (or day) on November 18, 1934, at Porters Hospital, when Phil Grimm decided to come into the world, backwards. The Dr’s at that time weren’t real sure how to deal with this kind of birth so they needed some help. Phil attended Lincoln Elementary, Grant Jr. High and Englewood Sr. High, graduating in 1952. He then took Pre-Dental at DU for one year and participated in Air Force ROTC and dated a WAC.

At about this time, he met Marlys (who had Cheerleader legs), a Dental Assistant for Phil’s Uncle and in the l1953, they were married. They have 3 kids and 4 grand kids. He was brought into the club by Bill Anderson and Bill Parchen. In 2002/2003, Phil was the club President after going through most of the chairs.

Phil started his working career doing summer jobs like building a house, shoveling up to 20 tons of manure a day and buffing cars. In 1957 he went into the sign business and retired from it in 2001. Now he plays tennis, golf and cards to stay busy.

Program:   Randy Smith introduced Brian Ewert, Superentendant of the Englewood Schools.

Englewood, October 22, 2014 – Brian Ewert, the superintendent of Englewood Schools, was selected as the Colorado Superintendent of the Year and will represent Colorado in the 2015 American Association of School Administrators National Superintendent of the Year program. The selection was made by a committee consisting primarily of education leaders who received this recognition in prior years.
“We are honored to have Brian as our Superintendent of the Year and to have his efforts recognized in this way,” CASE Executive Director Bruce Caughey said. “Englewood Schools, including the students, families and educators, has greatly benefitted through Brian’s outstanding leadership over the past four years and we are delighted to highlight the amazing work underway by Colorado education leaders.”

Upon receiving the news, Ewert exclaimed, “I feel honored and privileged to be named the 2015 Colorado Superintendent of the Year. I am humbled to be among past recipients of this award whom I admire for their leadership and advocacy in public education. My success is not my own and I would be remiss not to acknowledge the many professionals that surround me with a shared vision of Englewood Schools, working tirelessly each day to bring systemic, positive change including instructional and programmatic improvements to the students and community of Englewood.”
