As plans continue to move forward for the Fort Zumwalt School District Transition Center, the Board of Education approved the name for the facility—The Mike Clemens Center for Adaptive Learning.
“Mike Clemens was the real deal. He cared about his fellow man and showed it the way he lived his life, and the (way) he dedicated himself to the school district,” said Superintendent Bernie DuBray. “The Board recognized his 30 years of outstanding service to the district and wanted to do something that would give him credit for his contributions. The Transition Center was the perfect vehicle due to Mike’s work with At-Risk programs.” Clemens passed away in July of 2012.
The Mike Clemens Center for Adaptive Learning will be located on property adjacent to Westhoff Elementary School in O’Fallon. A dedication date has not yet been set.
