Mequon-Thiensville Foundation Announces “Hall of Inspiration” Inductees

March 15, 2010

MEQUON, WI – The Mequon-Thiensville School District announced today the induction of six new individuals into its “Hall of Inspiration.”

 

The Hall of Inspiration Award aims to inspire new generations of students to dedicate themselves to lives of accomplishment, service, and good character. It recognizes outstanding individuals who have either attended District schools or made meaningful contributions to them.

 

This year’s inductees are:

 

Jean Casey

Jean Casey served as a District Librarian for more than thirty-three years. Working with students from across the District, Ms. Casey helped expand and develop the District’s libraries and assisted students at every grade level. Her passion for literature and her wealth of knowledge of diverse genres helped develop a lasting love of literature in many young readers.

 

Karl Hertz

Karl Hertz served as the District’s Superintendent from 1984 to 1996, a period of significant growth in the community and school district. Under his management, the district instituted the standardization of grade configurations and the creation of new curricular programs, including the double-accelerated math program and Project Pursuit. Dr. Hertz’s community leadership abilities have also been proven through his participation in the Thiensville-Mequon Rotary Club and position as the National President of the American Association of School Administrators.

 

Marla Lichtenberger

A member of the Homestead High School class of 1971, Dr. Lichtenberger is a veterinarian who specializes in the care of exotic animals. A frequent international speaker, she owns and runs the Milwaukee Emergency Center for Animals.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Leslie MacIntyre

A visionary English teacher who joined the District’s staff in 1963, Ms. MacIntyre oversaw the growth of the communications department during her tenure. The excellence of the program today is largely based on her vision.

 

Carol Miller

A 1970 graduate of Homestead High School, Carol Miller is currently vice-president of productions for Server Products, a Richfield-based manufacturer of food service equipment for small restaurants. In addition to holding a leadership position at Server, Carole is a committed member of the Germantown Chamber of Commerce, serving both on the board of directors and as acting president. Carol has also been the president of the Germantown Community Scholarship Fund since 2004.

 

Keith Schroeder

As class president of the Homestead High School class of 1968, Keith Schroeder was an active student who was involved in athletics, theatre, and academics. Shortly before his graduation, Keith was stricken with Multiple Sclerosis, a disease which he continues to battle with today. In nominating him for induction, members of the classes of 1966, 1968 and 1969 wrote of his optimism and how he has served as a source of inspiration for all those around him.

 

“We are very pleased to announce this year’s inductees,” said Dr. Demond Means, District Superintendent. “Each of them has made their community a better place to live through dedication and the inspiration they have shared with others. I look forward to the induction ceremony on June 2nd.”

 

The Hall of Inspiration awards will be given as part of Homestead’s 50th anniversary and will provide the ideal opportunity to formally recognize and celebrate the achievements of exceptional alumni and staff.
