Congratulations, you are the first person to bring race into this. Nice job. Up until I read your comment, it hadn't occurred to me to even think about what color this kid was, just that a kid is dead and shouldn't be. By the way, there are black people living in affluent neighborhoods right along with white, asian, hispanic...

Quincy Journal reflects on educational stories that made headlines

Quincy Schools both public and private saw leadership changes in 2012 and some with more to come in 2013.

The School Board is in the process of hiring a superintendent to replace Lonny Lemon, who left the District in June for a job in the Chicago suburbs. Video is available here.

School Board President Bill Daniels also announced he would not be seeking re-election in 2013. Long-time Board member Tom Dickerson is also leaving the Board. For more on this, click here.

The District also announced it was changing the way it deals with retiring teachers. Teachers will no longer be giving 6 percent raises at the end of their contracts as a way to incentivize retirements.

The School District also continues to deal with sagging state finances as part of the pension issue.

Quincy Notre Dame High School saw a new principal take over for the first time in nearly 20 years. QND alum Mark McDowell took over for Ray Heilmann. Video is available by clicking here.

Long-time John Wood Community College Vice President John Letts received a promotion as he was named JWCC President at the start of 2012. The appointment of Letts was meant to be seen as a calming influence after the 2011 departure of Tom Klincar, who received a six-figure buyout from the college. Click here to view the contract.

And Quincy University received its largest-ever single donation, $1 million from the Niemann family. The university will use those funds to convert the existing chapel at North Campus to a Performing Arts Center. For more on this story, click here.
