RIP Sue Francis, Former Delaware School Boards Association Executive Director

I just found out Sue Francis passed away in July.  She was the Executive Director of the Delaware School Boards Assocation from 1999 to 2016.  HShe retired earlier this year and was replaced by John Marinucci.  You can read her obituary here.

I met Sue a few times, usually at State Board of Education meetings.  She was always kind to me.  I remember her telling me how she was looking forward to retirement.  It’s a shame she wasn’t able to really begin that retirement after decades of service to Delaware education.

Rest in peace Sue Francis!
