Dr. Sturock Honored
Allen Park’s superintendent, Dr. Sturock was honored Monday evening at his final appearance at a board meeting. Many special presentations paid tribute to all of his hard work, dedication, and putting students first. Arno had a great showing with several staff members and students in attendance. We are very excited and pleased to announce the Arno Media center has now been named to “John J Sturock Media Center” in honor of our superintendent, and recognizing that he was also a former Arno student- Go Cougars!! Dr. Sturock was also given a plaque commemorating that naming, as well as a shirt donated by the PTA, and two large photos of the sign in place above the media center door. Mr. Creutz also had an outstanding adapted version of Crosby, Stills, and Nash in chorus with Arno students! Special thanks Emily Quickel, Kaylee Williams, Olivia Kalis, Zach Hillmer , Zoila Davenport, Reina Garza, Abby Obrycki, Sandy Bennett, Diane Peyton, Dawn Watson, Brian Trionfi, Lisa Smalley, Barb Chuby, and Todd Creutz for their contributions to the night. Way to go Cougars!
From the PTA
It’s the “LUCKIEST” Day of the Year! We hope that some of our Caring Cougar Community were able to catch a tricky LEPRECHAUN! If not, we hope you’re enjoying your day with good food, drink, and people!
Speaking of winners….our Executive Board has its own “Winner” too! Our Super Awesome Treasurer is part of her company’s (Consumer Energy) ad campaign to support women’s leadership with two other companies: the Society of Women Engineers at U-M and Career Mastered. WAY TO GO JULIE! What a wonderful opportunity to be involved in! Julie also applied for anagrams from Consumers Energy and was awarded $250 for volunteering her time at Arno and in our Community. WOW! What a Rock Star!
