Shout out to Dr. Savage, who served as a guest panelist at the “Women in Leadership” session at the Joint Annual Conference in Chicago today. Dr. Savage, along with female superintendents, shared their reflections, support, and encouragement for fellow female leaders from districts across the State of Illinois. The session drew a full house!

This panel is a great example of women in leadership paying it forward to future leaders. Approximately 85% of teachers are female, but only 25% of superintendents are female! Female superintendents are intentional about encouraging and lifting up others so they feel confident to take that next step. Moline-Coal Valley is proud to have Dr. Savage as the leader of our district. Thank you, Dr. Savage, for setting the pace, leading by example, and paving the way for other female leaders in education.

About the conference: The Joint Conference is recognized as one of the nation’s largest state education conferences and is a premier training event for school board members, administrators, and business officials. The conference is held annually in November.
