LANSING, MI - Washtenaw Intermediate School District Superintendent Scott Menzel is one of the five people Gov. Rick Snyder appointed this week to a group that advises the state on early childhood education.
Snyder announced the Early Childhood Investment Corp. appointments on Wednesday, Aug. 2. Along with Menzel, Luanne Ewald of Royal Oak, Laurie Linscott of East Lansing and Kristen McDonald of Bay City were added to the board, and Jeffrey Mills of Allegan was re-appointed.
Created in 2005, the 15-member board provides input on early childhood policy and programming to help children and families thrive, according to the group's website. Much of their work has centered on building and maintaining the Great Start network that provides quality standards for preschool and child care programs.
"I thank these individuals for their service and commitment. I am confident their combined experiences will be a positive asset to the board," Snyder said in a press release.
Menzel has been superintendent of the WISD since 2011. He previously served as superintendent at Whitmore Lake Public Schools and the Livingston Educational Service Agency. During the 2013-2014 school year, he worked as superintendent of both the WISD and Ypsilanti Community Schools.
