To mark her final meeting on June 20, 2019 as D64's Superintendent, Board President Rick Biagi (photo/right) joined with former President Anthony Borrelli (photo/left) in praising Dr. Laurie Heinz for her five years of leadership, which dramatically changed the face of D64 for the better.

President Biagi noted he had never met a more dedicated and hardworking person than Dr. Heinz and that her commitment to D64 and her students was unmatched and undeniable.

Former President Borrelli, who was on the Board when Dr. Heinz was hired, thanked her for her unsurpassed work ethic, deep knowledge of the field of education, and her mantra of continuous improvement in inspiring students and staff to higher achievement and growth. Board members also added their thanks for her many contributions.

The Board presented Dr. Heinz with a plaque in appreciation and as a reminder of the impact she has had on D64.

On July 1, Dr. Heinz will become Superintendent of CCSD15 in Palatine, and D64 will welcome Dr. Eric Olson as our new Superintendent.
